O`Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2008, 750mL (WA94+, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

O`Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Howell Mountain, Napa

WA94+, ST93
Rated 94+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is comprised of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest six other grapes - Merlot, Malbec, St. Macaire (how often do you see that!), Petit Verdot, Carmenere, and Cabernet Franc - and is aged 20 months in three-fourths French oak. It has a dense purple color, a wonderful, crystalline nose of crushed rock, camphor, creme de cassis and spring flowers, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. The tannins are moderately high, but they are soft and well-integrated. This is a wine of tremendous intensity and plenty of up-side. Give this wine 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 20-25 years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This tiny estate has turned out a beautiful Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and a phenomenal Mt. Veeder that I certainly underrated when I tasted it from barrel last year.`
