Product details

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Howell Mountain Estate Red Blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 3% Malbec aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with incredibly fragrant red and black currants, crushed black berries and black cherries notes with hints of cigar box, bay leaves, licorice, oyster sauce, yeast extract and chargrill. The palate is full, super concentrated and built like a brick house, offering very firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and savory. This flat-out beauty should be very long lived!

Our history: Arkenstone Vineyards was founded in 1988 when proprietors Ron and Susan Krausz purchased their unique Howell Mountain AVA property. The majority of the vineyards were planted in 1998, with additional planting taking place in 2009. Arkenstone produces all of their wine on the Estate, entirely below ground, in state-of-the-art winery caves. Their first release, after patiently waiting for the vineyards to reach maturity, was the 2006 Vintage.

Our story: We first discovered, and were irretrievably drawn to this unique property in the late 1980’s. For nearly 30 years we have shared the beauty and bounty of Arkenstone with bear, coyote, mountain lion, rattle snake, scorpion and raptors of all sorts. Remnants of native Obsidian work, as well as historic dry-stack walls made of local stone, are constant reminders that we are just the latest inhabitants to appreciate, care for and benefit from this land.
