This 33-acre site on Howell Mountain has 15 acres planted by David Abreu and his team and rests at 2000 feet elevation. Tucked into the forest, this estate vineyard brings incredible black fruit and a depth of secondary notes to the bottle. Winemaker Brad Grimes loves this vineyard because of its potential for aging yet also its vibrancy that shows immediately in the glass. “The 2016 Las Posadas is a stunning Howell Mountain wine. Inky, rich, and hedonistically beautiful, the 2016 is simply magnificent. Crème de cassis, chocolate, menthol, licorice, lavender, cloves, mint, graphite, and crushed rocks are all amped up in the glass. Unctuous, creamy, and super-expressive, the Posadas captures the opulence of Howell Mountain. It is simply magnificent in every way." 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. 100 Points, Antonio Galloni.
