Vinous 95 WA 93 - The wine is dark purple in color with aromas of violets, raspberries, blueberry compote, black tea and vanilla bean. Focused flavors of wild cherry jam, crème de cassis, plum butter, caramelized sugar, and mocha are followed by a long finish with integrated acidity and palate filling tannins. Muscular, but with restrained elegance, this wine carries the O’Shaughnessy trademark of balance and power.
Description

Details

Vinous 95 WA 93 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, new leather, tobacco, cloves and mocha meld together in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Rich, ample and textured, the 2012 is full of intensity. The contours are quite soft, though, which makes the 2012 unusually gentle and tamed for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The radiant, explosive finish alone is hugely appealing. In 2012, winemaker Sean Capiaux used all seven Bordeaux varieties in the blend.

According to Robert Parker - Composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec and a handful of other varietals, The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain exhibits an opaque purple color as well as abundant aromas of wet gravel, lead pencil shavings, blueberries and mulberries, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and a terrific texture and finish. Drink this impressive effort over the next 15-20 years.

Winemakers Notes - The 2012 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous and multilayered wine that showcases the complexity of all seven of the Bordeaux varietals that we farm. The wine is dark purple in color with aromas of violets, raspberries, blueberry compote, black tea and vanilla bean. Focused flavors of wild cherry jam, crème de cassis, plum butter, caramelized sugar, and mocha are followed by a long finish with integrated acidity and palate filling tannins. Muscular, but with restrained elegance, this wine carries the O’Shaughnessy trademark of balance and power. 14.8% ABV.
