92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate</i>

When I first tasted this wine, I was transported to one of the most beautiful parts of Napa Valley: Howell Mountain. The second time was with a big porterhouse steak which, as you can imagine, was a perfect pairing! Howell at the Moon captures it all: it is a strong, muscular wine with a balanced, long finish that is simply remarkable. - Jeffrey Meisel, Gilt Taste Wine Director

Why to buy: This a California Cab-lover's California Cab. Big, bold, fruit forward, luscious tannins. Break out the big-bowled Riedel stemware. It's time for a party.

Nose, palate and pairing: The 2007 vintage is an exemplar of wine from this region: full-bodied and deep in flavor, this wine can cellar for the next decade. If you're drinking now, pair with big flavors like grilled dry-aged steaks, roasted portabello mushrooms or peppery arugula salad with a toasted hazelnut vinaigrette.

The backstory: The Howell Mountain AVA of Napa is known for producing deep, dark, brambly tannic wines that are muscular and have the ability to age for years. Sarah Gott, the winemaker for Howell at the Moon, clearly knows her craft – she has a deft hand in the vineyard and winery, making a wine with finesse that is not overwhelmed by these mountain tannins.
