2004 LADERA HOWELL MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON
"A rustic yet smooth and harmonious style, with dusty berry, mineral, sage and herb scents that form a complex core of flavors. There's good intensity, and the tannins are in check. Ends with a minerally aftertaste, making this a wine that's very true to its appellation. Best from 2008 through 2016. 2,500 cases made."-91 Points Wine Spectator
"Deep ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry and menthol on the pure, slightly medicinal nose. Dense, sweet and pure, with lovely delineation and depth to the flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and mint. Chewy but pliant. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and very good length. Classic Howell Mountain cabernet from a ripe year." -91 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"Look northeast from the town of St Helena, and youâll see the west facing slopes of Howell Mountain rising high above the Napa Valley floor along the eastern side of the Silverado Trail. Laderaâs Howell Mountain vineyard sits across the broad summit of a ridge of that mountain, and in spite of altitudes ranging from 1,600 to 1,800 feet, the terrain is rolling and gentle."
"Itâs a scene that looks remarkably peaceful for a mountain with a volcanic past. The volcanic soils are evident, however, in the deep red color of the soil that is part of the magic of Howell Mountain. The valley fog doesnât reach these elevations, but in spite of full days of sunlight, high temperatures at this altitude are cooler than those at the valley floor. While fruit development lags behind the valley floor in the early part of the year, we catch up in ripeness later in the year when we are bathed in sunlight and the valley floor is still covered in Pacific fog."
"In 1982 Howell Mountain was officially designated as Californiaâs first sub-appellation within Napa Valley. By that time, it had been recognized as a unique site for prized and prestigious vineyards for over a century." -Winery
This wine was also scored 89 points by the Wine Advocate and 86 Points by the Wine Enthusiast.
2005 FRESCOBALDI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO CASTELGIOCONDO
"From the historic Frescobaldi family that has been making wine since the 1300s, this concentrated and rich Brunello delivers a modern touch to a territory steeped in tradition. Aromas here include plump cherry, blackberry and cassis and all that fruit is supported by spice and light toast. Drink after 2012." 92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty offering laced with fresh flowers, plums, dark berries and spices, all of which emerge gracefully from its mid-weight frame. Clean, minerally notes inform the long, delicate finish. This is a terrific effort from Castelgiocondo, especially considering production is a whopping 230,000 bottles. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." 91 Points- Antonio Gallonio (Wine Advocate)
"Very pretty blueberry and light vanilla aromas, with hints of ripe dark fruits. Full-bodied, with round, velvety tannins that turn chewy, yet this is well-polished and the tannins are attractive, with a long finish. Best after 2012. 19,165 cases made." 90 Points- Wine Spectator
"Medium-deep red. Captivating, perfumed aromas of redcurrant, bay leaf and orange zest. Then bright and juicy on the palate, with lovely density to the red cherry, redcurrant and licorice flavors. The long finish features youthfully chewy tannins and a lingering floral perfume. The bright acids serve to extend the flavors on the finish, and though this isn't a hugely concentrated wine, I very much like its balance and fresh Sangiovese character." 90 Points- International Wine Cellar
"Constructed in 1100 to guard the road from the port at Talamone to Siena, the castle has belonged to the Frescobaldi family since 1989. Already one of the top-quality producers of Brunello di Montalcino in the late 19th century, the tenuta of Castelgiocondo yields massively-structured wines of great complexity and balance."
"The estate lies on the southwestern slope of Montalcino, at elevations ranging from 180 to 400 metres, and comprises 815 hectares, with 230 hectares under vine. A total of 152 hectares are officially registered for the production of Brunello di Montalcino. The soils, given their various elevations, are diverse, and the climate is warm and dry, relieved by marine breezes: these are ideal conditions for producing very full-bodied, sturdily-structured and powerful wines that are, at the same time, characterised by remarkable finesse and balance. The wines produced at the Castel Giocondo estate are Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG, Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Campo ai Sassi Rosso di Montalcino DOC, and Lamaione IGT."
