O'Shaugnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2005
The 2005 Howell Mountain has an opaque ruby red color with a garnet hue. Ripe cherry, blackberry, smoke, tobacco leaf, coco bean and dark chocolate aromas are framed by sweet vanilla oak. Elegant but concentrated flavors of espresso bean, graphite, raspberry and strawberry preserves are followed by a long complex finish with silky tannins and good acidity. An extracted wine that is rewarding upon release but will continue to improve with cellaring.
External Reviews for O'Shaugnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a beauty, with dark ruby/purple color and a big sweet nose of tobacco leaf intermixed with black currant, black cherry, new saddle leather, and white chocolate. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, with superb purity, texture, and length. It?s approachable now but promises to be better in 3-4 years, and last for at least 15 or more.
