O’Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Merlot


Our high energy Merlot has returned! Dark ruby in color, with a vibrant red hue this wine has intense aromas of cherry and raspberry, warm baking spices, followed by luxurious oak accents.  On the palate the wine is full bodied with balanced acidity and integrated tannins. This Merlot is approachable now, but has the characteristics to develop and improve for decades.


92 Points – Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
“A chunky 100% Merlot, the 2013 offers gorgeous toffee, black cherry and mocha notes as well as some chocolate. It has beautiful density, a plump, corpulent, medium to full-bodied texture, and a luscious finish. This is a sexpot of a Merlot fruit bomb to drink over the next 8-10 years.”
