Cabernet Sauvignon, Pilcrow, “Granite Lake” Howell Mountain 2019
Wife-and-husband (and regulars at Compline Restaurant) team Sara and Jonah Beer combine their varied experiences in the wine industry to make wines in pursuit of the style of Napa in the 60s and 70s. The Granite Lake vineyard used for this bottling comes from the very top of Howell Mountain, 2100 feet up, well off the Silverado Trail and a different, more rugged side of Napa than most visitors ever see. Their 2019 is similarly rugged, displaying a meaty, animale side, but also the rich plum and cassis power of Napa. Who knew current-day Napa Cabernet could have so much aromatic nuance and savor? Quality in the Beer’s winemaking has improved exponentially in their short history, and we expect the wine inside this bottle to do the same over the next two decades.
