The 2016 Cimarossa Cabernet continues the lineage we been developing for 15 years. This is a true Howell Mountain Cabernet. It is not to drink immediately, it demands and deserves your full attention. This is a wine of structure, immense depth and richness that will age and improve for years. It is all about black fruits, smoke, slow-cooked meats and mouth-filling richness. This is a wine to savor with the best of friends over a decadent meal.

Wine AdvocateCimarossa means "red hill top" in Italian, which aptly defines this very special hillside vineyard, planted on a volcanic cinder cone. The elevation is 2,100 feet, and the soils are predominately red volcanic rock and dust. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard gives up cassis, blackberry pie, blueberry tart and earth with notions of spices, camphor, meat and wood smoke. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, the palate is packed with fruit and spices, finishing layered, very long and savory. 211 cases produced. Drink Date: 2021-2043.

Wine SpectatorSolidly built, with intense black currant and blackberry pâte de fruit notes liberally lined with bramble, licorice snap and tar details. Dense and compact, but this bristles with energy and should unwind nicely in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2032. 200 cases made.
