2007 O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The 2011 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a supple and exciting wine that knows how to make an immediate impression. The wine is dark purple in color with a deep ruby edge. Brandied cherry, cocoa, wild plum, blueberry, pomegranate, and violet aromas intermingled with vanilla cream jump from the glass. Expressive fruit concentrates on the palate with boysenberry, black olive, fig jam and crème de cassis being followed by a long complex finish with balanced tannins and good acidity.

    (From 2002 Vintage) The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot) is the finest Cabernet this estate has yet produced from their Howell Mountain holdings. A dense purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, creme de cassis, smoke, and crushed rocks are followed by sweet fruit, gorgeous density, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a layered, multidimensional mid-palate and length. With no hard edges, this flawless wine should drink well for 20-25 years.
