Howell Mountain Vineyards O'Shaughnessey Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is our most blended wine to date using all seven varietals we grow, but still varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine exhibits a saturated dark purple color with an opaque center. Complex aromas of roasted espresso bean, black currant, graphite, black cherry, raspberry and blue fruits. Dense flavors of crushed black fruits lead to a long sweet persistent palate feel with full tannins and great acid balance that should allow this wine to age for decades.
