In the 2012 vintage winemaker Dr. Tim Milos was awarded 97pts for his Impassable Mountain Reserve and in 2013 he was presented with a perfect 100pts. Robert Parker called it: “quintessential example of what perfection is in my business, taste this wine!" Absolutely remarkable in every sense “  It's Now or Never!

Do we need to say more? Packed with black cherry and silken in texture, it’s now or never for this knockout Howell Mountain Cabernet!

About the wine

Marc Cohen’s 4.5 acre Cabernet Vineyard is planted in Howell Mountain’s most exclusive neighborhood, across from O’Shaughnessy’s legendary plantings and not far from Dunn either! Armed with 100-point winemaker Thomas Milos, and a no expense spared attitude, Howell at the Moon is a mind-blowing, rich Cabernet.

The estate performed brilliantly in near-legendary 2012 vintage, and is one of the more improbable single-vineyard bargains in our history. Farmed a the top of Howell Mountain, the combination of sunshine, soil, and elevation at Cohen’s Knoll vineyard is literally impossible to beat and gives this wine its unrivaled intensity—even in a land of over the top Cabs. Juicy, wild black fruit meets intense minerality and tannins that beg for a steak. This deal won’t last long—except in your cellar!

"Nice structure, balanced, but plenty of fruit on the nose" - Alec D.

"A complex rich and powerful CS from Howell mountain volcanic terroir in Napa California." - Yarlvyo

"As most of Howell Mountain Cabs excellent!" - Luiz P.

"The finish is bursting with baked blueberry pie and lush tannins making for a well balanced cab." - Rob K.

"This is the Cabernet that all other Cabernet should be judged by." Joan G.

97+ pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"Explosive aromas of stewed blueberry! The mouthfeel is powerful with high extract and richness. The deep aromatics support the dense, expansive and mouth-watering full-bodied intensity.  Loads of spice add to the intrigue and ever lasting refined tannin structure. This is serious stuff but has the guts to last another 8-10 years. An amazing effort in a classically ripe vintage!"

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
