Description

 Wine Advocate 95

“The sensational 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (which is reasonably priced, given how superb it is) is her largest cuvée of just under 3,300 cases. It is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest tiny quantities of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère, Petit Verdot, and a real head scratcher, St. Macaire. Inky purple to the rim, with notes of white flowers, licorice, forest floor and graphite, this wine exhibits classic mulberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit notes, some background, vague oak, a full-bodied, beautifully proportioned mouthfeel, and a layered finish. Like most 2014s, it can be drunk now, but it has at least two decades of cellaring potential.” – Robert Parker

One of my favorite wineries in Napa Valley, Betty O’Shaughnessy, the proprietress, bought her original vineyard on Howell Mountain in 1996 and began planting in the red, rocky, aiken volcanic soils. The elevation is a whopping 1,900 feet and is south-sloping, which is perfect for the sun exposition.
