Resting like an island above the Napa Valley fog is Howell Mountain. A perfect wine jewel, this mountainous terroir undeniably delivers some of the best Bordeaux grapes in the world. The Sacred Bull sits proud and high among the First Growths of Napa.
The Bull is sacred. Shiva used a bull for transport. Zeus turned into one to tempt Hera. Ka in Egyptian is both a religious concept of life-force/power and the word for bull. Get it? Serious stuff…
This wine embodies raw power and grace. Ample tannins, Iberico smoked ham, black currant and blackberry make up the inky core of this sexy beast. The Bull is infused with poignant layered spices but stays as focused as a sniper. It’s more complex than algebraic geometry but as approachable as Tom Hanks at a Denny’s in a chicken suit.
