2010 O’Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon – Just about Perfect

2010 O’Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Malbec and Merlot added for roundness. On the eyes an extremely dark purple and med-heavy viscosity. On the nose an almost overwhelming experience of aromas of violets and blackberries. On the palate everything imaginable from a mountain fruit from Napa Valley. Ranging from dark chocolate, granite to boysenberry. Structured as tight as the Rock of Gibraltar with tannins as balanced as tightrope walker with a silky smooth finish. For the last 15+ years always a perennial favorite wine. This was the after dinner treat plus a few others for some out of town guests. Robert Parker rated it 96 points, but I even believe it is higher! Current retail is $150 . #oshaughnessywinery #napavalleywines #napacabernetsauvignon #cabernetsavignon #howellmountain https://californiawinesandwineries.com
