RATINGS: 92pts Wine Advocate

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 its 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.

In 2009, Roger Louer produced Louer Family Reserve Cabernet from his personal estate in St. Helena for a select group of friends. The wine was sourced from the best barrels of the 34 acre estate and has sold out before it was produced for the past three years. Roberts + Rogers will release the 2012 vintage under the R+R label for the first time.

Since that first release, the Roberts + Rogers wines have continued to improve in excellence, receiving numerous awards and accolades.

Tasting Notes: Wine Advocate 92 points The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a fruit forward, delicious, dark ruby/purple wine with medium to full body, beautifully pure notes of mulberry, graphite and blackcurrants. Silky tannins and a savory, expansive mouthfeel are impressive and the wine long and rich on the palate with excellent balance. Like most 2014s, it is fully mature and already showing evolution and immediate accessibility ďż˝ even for a mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next 12 15 years.
