The product of our tireless work and dedication is Aloft Cabernet Sauvignon. It reflects every vine we trained, every row we tended, every grape we harvested from our vineyard. Aromas of ripe blackberries, deep black currants and elegant rose petals express themselves in an earthy framework. On the palate you'll notice black cherries, plum and hints of tobacco and mineral - all made possible by our Howell Mountain sanctuary. Silky tannins, a smooth mouth feel and a lingering hint of heavenly dark chocolate round out the full experience of this Cabernet Sauvignon.
|Wine maker notes
|Our father, Napa Valley winemaking icon Peter Mondavi Sr., raised us in the idyllic vineyard landscape of the Napa Valley. This instilled in us a passion, a commitment, a desire to produce the best wine that is humanly possible in collaboration with nature. We have assembled a team comprised of an exceptionally gifted winemaker, a world-class vineyard manager and a vineyard site we believe is capable of producing fruit of unparalleled quality. While it may seem strange to consider a vineyard part of the team, we believe it is our most critical team member.
Beginning with our prized Howell Mountain site, vineyard manager Jim Barbour creates a sanctuary capable of growing fruit of the highest caliber. Winemaker Thomas Brown utilizes this fruit in pursuit of superior quality Cabernet Sauvignon, a pursuit that is without compromise. After years of collaboration it is with great pride that we share the fruition of our aspirations and introduce Aloft – new heights in Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain.
