O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
VinousDark red cherry, plum, smoke, new leather, tobacco, cloves and mocha meld together in the 2012 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. 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.
