O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $51.74-$79.99, 95 points, doesn't display the color of crushed black currant and blackberry until it laps at the leggy glass wall (almost black throughout) where it terminates with a transparent rim; you might want to decant or let this wine stand upright for a day or two before opening (debris).
With a magnificent bouquet of warm brownies, flowers, marzipan, and sea breezes, this is a fragrance to "bottle".
Full bodied, luscious, opulent and so much more, O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon improved over night. This Cabernet was more a tactile experience than a flavor experience, though deep black fruit and blueberry were rich and cola notes lively, the acids were good and the tannin blanketed like a down comforter.
Finished long on the trailing palate and climaxed with spice and a perfectly integrated 14.8% alcohol.
