O`Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2005, 750mL (WA95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

O`Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Howell Mountain, Napa

WA95
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `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. A I said last year, this relatively new producer is off to a flying start. Winemaker Sean Capiaux (who has his own Pinot Noir operation) seems to be doing some stunning work with this 35-acre vineyard, planted with 29 acres of Cabernet and the rest other Bordeaux varietals. There is also a small cuvee (under 1,000 cases) of Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Veeder. Tasting through some barrel samples of 2006 showed this to be a very fine vintage, if not up to the level of 2005 and 2004, at least at this stage in their development. Tel. (707) 965-2898; Fax (707) 965-3010` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
