Just a few miles north of the winery is our Fifteen-Forty Vineyard, on the east-facing flank of Howell Mountain. The elevation of 1,365 feet is just below the Howell Mountain appellation. One of our steeper vineyards, with terraced slopes and low yielding vines, this site will complete the organic certification process in 2008.

Flavors and quality similar to those of the Howell Mountain Estate with a very firm structure but approachable tannins for this hillside location. Wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon varietal character: full of berry, cassis and vanilla cola. Firm structure and a luscious mouth coating intensity full of cherry, cassis, violet fruit and finishes with deep age worthy tannins.
