Thursday"s line up........

2017 Bravante Estate Merlot
reg $74.99 on sale $ 65.00

93 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine
“Howell Mountain’s volcanic soils and elevations lend a powerful structure to this merlot, assuaged by the variety’s inherent softness. It’s bold, easy and richly oaked, while juicy red-plum flavors surround that wood, giving the wine the stamina to age. —J.G. (150 cases)

reg. $74.99 on sale $59.00

93 Points, James Suckling

2018 Bravante  Estate
Cabernet Sauvignon

reg $89.99 on sale $77.00

92 Points, James Suckling
“Big tannins balanced by rich blackberry, blueberry, cassis and mineral flavors. The finish is dry and delightfully spicy." (350 cases)

A bit about Howell Mountian........
Back in the 1870’s, two guys named Jean V. Chaix and Jean Adolf Brun planted grapes on cheap mountain land around Angwin, CA. Their cost cutting strategy proved to be a blessing when, in 1889, Brun and Chaix’s “Nouveau Medoc” won a Bronze Medal at the Paris World Competition. The pair were successful during their heyday in the 1890’s producing up to 750,000 bottles a year.
When Prohibition set in during the 1920’s, Howell Mountain fell off the map and didn’t reappear for 50 years. Then, in 1980, a quirky winemaker named Randy Dunn astounded the wine world with his Howell Mountain Cabernet. In 1983, Howell Mountain became officially recognized as the first sub-region in California: The first sub-AVA of Napa Valley.
