O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

93-95 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2004 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, dark ruby red color with a vibrant purple hue and an almost opaque core. Complex aromas of black cherry, black currant, tobacco, sandalwood, leather, smoked meats and chocolate. This wine has a purity of place and minerality with black pepper, orange rind and soy sauce qualities. Mixed red berry flavors and sweet vanilla cream with an excellent acid, tannin balance that lingers on the palate. An elegant yet extracted wine that is impressive upon release but will continue to improve with cellaring. <br/><br/>Varietal Composition: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon 6% Merlot 4% Petit Verdot 3% Malbec 2% Carmenere 1% Cabernet Franc 1% St. Macaire Appellation: Howell Mountain Del Oso & Amphitheater Vineyards <br/><br/>Harvest: Sept. 15 - Oct. 11 <br/>Bottling date: August 2006 <br/>Type of oak: French <br/>Months in oak: 20 months <br/>Alcohol: 14.8% Cases 2200<br/><br/>

I have had the pleasure of drinking this wine on two separate occasions and found it to be steller both times. Can only see it improving with age. Enjoy it with a well marbled steak.
