Appellation: Howell Mountain
Tech Notes
By Fleury Estate
2011 Howell Mountain BDX Napa Valley

Fruit Source
With its rolling hills and unique microclimates, the Howell Mountain Appellation offers spectacular vineyards and some of the most wonderful and sought after wines. Standing gracefully 1,800 feet above the valley floor and overlooking Saint Helena, Howell Mountain sees slightly warmer nighttime temperatures and cooler mid-day temperatures. The difference in temperature is still pronounced enough to maintain balanced acidity and allows the berries to develop somewhat a thicker skin that imparts intense color, texture, and structure to the wines.

Growing Season
The 2011 vintage will be remembered in many ways, both good and bad. It was a year marked with challenging weather, characterized by persistent winter rains into late March. Spring and early summer rains gave way to a mild growing season, with only a handful of days above 100 degrees F and none of the extreme highs we've seen in years past. This unpredictable and bizarre weather produced a smaller harvest, grapes with lower-than-normal sugars, and led to a historically late harvest. Even with a lighter-than-normal crop, we responded to the cooler summer conditions with judicious thinning to keep the vines balanced regarding fruit ripening. Albeit, the resulting wines showcase striking elegance and structure. The 2011 wines will be a collector's delight!

Varietal Composition
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot

Harvest Date
November 2 through November 6, 2011

Fermentation
Hand-harvested and picked at night. Hand-sorted while still cold from the field. Fermented in the small, closed top, stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. Three to five days of cold soak, 24 to 29 days total maceration. Gentle pump-overs and delestage. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrels.

Aging
Aged 22 months in 75% new French oak barrels from select artisan coopers. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes
The 2011 Howell Mountain BDX is a lovely offering from a difficult season that exhibited more Bordeaux-like conditions than those typical to Napa Valley. Glorious aromas of jasmine, crushed rose petal, spring flowers, dark cherry, forest floor, and lead pencil shaving begin the journey. Full-bodied and abundant, the palate offers layered flavors of cherry, warm vanilla, savory herbs, graphite, and sweet oak. Warm, rich, and with a silky broad texture, it is strikingly intriguing and offers an elegant mouthfeel. The interplay of fruit, lush tannins, and mineral expressions makes this wine irresistible, complex, and graceful. Offering a pleasurable experience now and showcases plenty of promise for the beauty that will come with time.

Premier Online Wine Shop

Top Quality Wines at Flash Sale Prices

Welcome to Wines 'Til Sold Out! Whether you are a returning member or coming across WTSO for the first time, you've come to the right online wine shop for flash wine sales that will change the way you shop for your wine. Browse our shop today to find a wide selection of high-end wines for sale.

Who We Are

Since our beginnings a decade ago, our online wine store's membership base and service area have grown, but our goal has always been the same: to let our members experience the world's best wine at inexpensive prices. To achieve this, our flash wine sales feature only high-end wines selected by our team, all at inexpensive, discounted prices—making us the leading provider of high-quality discount wines online.

Over the years, WTSO has made connections with many of the greatest wine sellers, winemakers, and distributors in the world, allowing us to cultivate an unmatched online product selection and pass on significant savings to our members. We are delighted to be able to provide our members with our favorite wines, from the best French White Bordeaux to sweet American Cabernet Sauvignon to that dry yet easy-drinking Italian Chianti wine.

How It Works

WTSO is proud to do business with hundreds of wineries and distributors online, and we are always looking for new brands to feature on our website. Each bottle that we offer is hand-picked with careful consideration of every aspect of the wine. Once we have chosen a wine that meets the standards that our members have come to expect, we queue it to be featured for sale in our online wine store.

The bottle will then become part of a flash wine sale, wherein we offer that specific bottle for a limited period of time or until it is gone. Due to the high quality and sometimes rare nature of the wines we offer, wine deals online can last as little as one or two hours before selling out.

Regardless of what kind of wine you buy, you can count on free shipping from WTSO with a minimum purchase of any of our wine deals. When you shop from us for discount wines online, we guarantee safe and secure wine distribution and mailing methods. So, that no matter the size of your order, you can rest assured your purchase will arrive fully intact and ready to enjoy.

Commitment to Quality

A large part of what has made WTSO one of the world's most popular online wine stores retailers of wine is our unwavering commitment to the quality of the products that we sell.

Deciding which wines to feature in our shop is no simple task. As part of our company policy, we would never offer any brand or product that we would not happily drink ourselves. That's why we carefully deliberate over each bottle and select only products we truly feel are good enough to be featured for sale on our site.

It is this dedication to quality that keeps our members coming back to our online wine shop — week after week and bottle after bottle. With a strong emphasis on finding some of the most unique and sought-after wines available, WTSO's wine retailers guarantee that you will never be disappointed with the product you receive.

Bonus Offers & Marathons

Bonus Offers

In addition to our current featured offer, WTSO gives members an opportunity to receive extra wine delivery gifts from a hand-selected collection of wines. These inexpensive offers involve a themed group of wines that are grouped together by our team of experts specifically for your enjoyment. They're great for expanding your palate or for when you're gift-shopping.

Since the offer changes approximately once a month, you might find a bonus offer for sparkling wines one month, a group of sweet Italian white wines the next, and wines from a single vintage the month after that. Just like our ongoing current offer, these bonus wines are available to buy at discounted prices.

Marathons

We are always excited to offer WTSO Marathon Days, a fan favorite among members. While we provide our members with the top deals on quality wine every day of the year, we also hold occasional flash sale Marathons, where we typically sell out of over 70 wines in one day.

Each Marathon features various types of high-end wine, from French and Italian favorites to new American varietals of white wine, and includes our company-wide offer of free shipping with minimum purchase.

When it comes to WTSO Marathons, however, it is important to act fast. Each wine variety tends to sell out within 15 minutes or less! To keep an eye out for our next Marathon Day, subscribe to our newsletter.
