2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
In 2008, we again sourced fruit from the historic Polaris Vineyard located at 1750 feet near the town of Angwin. The vineyard sits above the clouds where it receives plenty of sun to ripen the fruit and cool nights to retain acidity. Soils are gravely with limited nutrients, causing significant vine stress. The 2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is even more concentrated than its predecessor and structured with layers of complex black fruit, surrounded by that ever-present Sojourn silky mouthfeel. This is a very pleasing wine with classic Howell Mountain structure and new world freshness.
90 points – Robert Parker
