2020 Viewfinder Merlot Howell Mountain Napa Valley
Our newly introduced Viewfinder series was inspired by Jack’s photography and comprises limited-edition wines. For the first time, Stephanie Jacobs Director of Winemaking crafted a Merlot from our renowned Howell Mountain vineyard for this series.
The fruit from the rugged slopes of Howell Mountain, where vineyards lie high above Napa Valley’s signature fog between 1,100 and 1,900 feet of elevation, is defined by iron-rich, volcanic soils. These soils force the vines to produce small, intense grapes which translate into powerful and intensely concentrated wines.
