Winemaker Notes

The wine is dense, deep and powerful in the tradition of Howell Mountain’s best offerings. This small-lot, single vineyard offering is meant for collectors seeking a precise expression of unique terroir.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
This carries a very toasty and spicy edge that makes for a modern impression on the nose with brightly ripe blue fruit as the central theme. The palate has a very polished, fresh and energetic feel with ripe blackberry and blueberry flavors holding long and fresh. A blend of 65 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 30 per cent merlot and five per cent malbec. Drink or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 The Stick is blended of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Malbec. Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals notes of chargrill, tapenade, rubber, wood smoke and scorched earth with a core of crème de cassis, stewed plums and herbs. Medium to full-bodied and packed with fruit, it is firm and chewy with loads of savory layers coming through on the finish.
