2007 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1061036 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. Drink through 2034. (RP)  (12/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright, deep red-ruby. Black fruits, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose. Deep, dense and tactile, with an enticing silky texture and an intriguing saline nuance to the flavors of black cherry, cassis and dark chocolate. There's a medicinal quality here that contributes to the complexity of this sweet but energetic wine. Really quite three-dimensional in its palate feel. (ST)  (6/2010)

K&L Notes

O'Shaughnessy's Howell Mountain estate vineyard was planted between 1997 and 2002 and it's beginning to show off its full potential. They grow intense, opulent, concentrated, dark purple colored fruit that is fleshy and sweet. It's rare for Howell Mountain wine to have such a fleshy, lush mid-palate of fruit combined with the typical power and concentration that you get from the region. Somehow, O’Shaughnessy always pulls this off. A tad bit of Merlot and Malbec are used in the blend but this wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon.
