This 33-acre site on Howell Mountain has 15 acres planted by David Abreu and his team. It is the location for where we hosted our inaugural Inspire Napa Valley VIP Friday dinner and it is stunning. Tucked into the forest, this estate vineyard brings incredible black fruit and a depth of secondary notes to the bottle. “The 2014 Las Posadas is quite polished and refined for a young Howell Mountain wine. Raspberry jam, rose petal and mint give the 2014 its very distinctive, red-toned personality. This is an especially bright, energetic, focused version of Las Posadas.” Abreu Vineyards is by far one of the best producers coming out of California today. Coming from the viticulture side, David Abreu farms his vineyards meticulously and their wines show it. – A. Galloni.
