The hillside location of this vineyard is ideal for Cabernet, as it sits above the fog line, enjoying warmer days and cooler nights.
"The 2009 cabernet sauvignons were divided into two different flights. The Howell Mountain Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon ($80) and Mount Veeder V. Sattui Cabernet Sauvignon ($49) respectively tied for first place in their flights...The V. Sattui cabernet showed expressive, mountain-bred fruit flavors of crushed berry, cassis and plum that were punctuated by bright herbal notes and cedar, making it another favorite of the group."
