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 medium-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. Largely structured similar to the Rock of Gibraltar with immense tannins but is balanced as a tightrope walker with a silky smooth finish. For the last 17+ years always a perennial favorite wine. This was a perfect wine for a treat on Halloween. Robert Parker rated it 96 points, but I even believe it is higher! The current release is 2018 and is $100/bottle. 

And for the record we provided candy for the “trick or treaters” not the O’Shaughnessy!!


Sláinte,
