About the Wine

In 1999, longtime friends Roger Louer and Robert Young commenced efforts to establish a first-class Cabernet Sauvignon wine brand, sourcing the grapes from Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, California.

Located to the east of St. Helena, at an elevation ranging from 1400 to 2200 feet, Howell Mountain is considered one of the most prestigious wine-growing regions in the world. Roberts and Rogers sources their grapes for this wonderful wine from the Howell Mountain sub-appellation area and for the present vintages from a vineyard jointly developed by Roberts and Rogers in 2000.

The first vintage of Roberts + Rogers, Howell Mountain was the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, released in 2007 with around 300 cases available. The wine was immediately met with a warm welcome from the privileged few to enjoy that first vintage. Following Vintages have received acclaim and high points from Robert Parker ratings.

Since that first release, the Roberts + Rogers wines have continued to improve in excellence, receiving numerous awards and accolades, high Parker ratings, as well as Gold Medals from esteemed competitions, including the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

From the Legendary St. Helena AVA known for producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. The cool Pacific breezes from the north reaches St. Helena earlier, cooling the vines and delivering graceful, intense fruit with concentration and depth.

This wine is made with 100% new oak. It's a big juicy, oaky, and fruit-forward delight. If you love big, juicy, oak-forward Napa Cabs then this is your jam!

Aging: 100% New French Oak

Tasting notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Louer Family Signature Series opens with cedar and underbrush notions giving way to a core of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry pie, and touches of wild sage. Full-bodied, concentrated, and densely packed with black fruit preserves, it has a firm, grainy frame with just enough freshness, finishing long and savory. 

Reviews

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Series is a little closed and rubbery to begin, giving way to notes of baked blackcurrants, prunes and fruitcake plus suggestions of tar, chargrill and licorice. Full-bodied and jam-packed with tightly wound black fruit and earthy layers, it has a rock-solid line of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. ~93+ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (v. 2016)
