One of the superstar estates on Howell Mountain, O’Shaughnessy’s winemaker Sean Capiaux is the force behind these impressive reds. Capiaux also makes his own wines under the Capiaux Cellars label.
Robert Parker gives this wine 94 Points and says: “…the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, …is performing better now than it did last year. A dense purple color in addition to plenty of creme de cassis, crushed rock, blueberry, and brioche-like notes are found in this full-bodied Cabernet. It avoids the rustic tannins of this vintage, and exhibits good sweetness and purity of fruit. Consume it over the next 15-20 years. ”
