Part one of three in our experimental Barrel Series from Howell Mountain, this big and bold red starts with ripe aromas of red fruit and spice that bring out more earthy notes on the tongue with subtle hints of vanilla. Dry, with gripping tannins, it finishes well rounded and structured with cherry and intense wood spice.
At an elevation of 1,400 feet above sea level, Howell Mountain sits high above Napa Valley and is one of the most heralded Cabernet Sauvignon growing regions in the world. The Radoux Revelation barrels produce more harmony and softness to this well-structured wine, while respecting the natural flavors of the fruit, and deliver a deep oak-aged experience. The moderate toast delivers a creamy vanilla soft aroma, while adding volume and weight on the tongue.
