- JANCIS ROBINSON: "Tiny winery owned by Betty O?Shaughnessy, who owns this vineyard and one on Mount Veeder that she bottles separately.
Deep crimson. Spicy, balsamic nose with an interesting resinous streak. Real character to this. Good intensity of fruit and balance. Local. 14,8 % Alc. 2017-2025."
- 96 Punkte DECANTER: "This great little number is among the dozens of tiny-production Cabernets made by family-owned wineries, often located high up in Napa Valley?s mountains, a 30-minute drive ? but a world away ? from the valley floor. This is black bear, mountain lion, and rattlesnake territory, and the wines often smell and taste of the rugged wild landscape that surrounds the small vineyards. O?Shaughnessy makes two mountain Cabernet Sauvignons ? one from Mount Veeder (cooler, with sedimentary soils) and this one from Howell Mountain (warmer, with volcanic soils). While I have been impressed by the deliciousness of both, the Howell Mountain wine, with its deep, exotic spiciness, almost furry texture and vivid black fig, dark tobacco and cassis flavour, is the more hedonistic of the two. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and the rare, ancient Bordeaux grape St Macaire."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Howell Mountain Many of our estate vines now exhibit eighteen years of age and have established deep roots on our 120 acre hillside property. Between 1997 and 2002, we planted 29 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and also cultivate 6 acres of all eight of the Bordeaux blending varietals. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec, Carmenere, St. Macaire, and Gros Verdot. In pursuit of maximizing our options for flavor, we utilized several different root stocks and clones for our Cabernet Sauvignon plantings. The vines span two distinct vineyards which we have the privelage of farming. The Amphitheater vineyard derives its name from its shape across the hillside. The Rancho del Oso vineyard, nearest the winery, boast a resident black bear who visits from time to time. In 2012 we were fortunate to purchase and adjacent 15 acres ad have planted Cabernet Sauvignon here. These three vineyards are farmed exclusively for the production of our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Howell Mountain Merlot.|
