2002 Rancho Del Oso Cabernet 1.5L
« Back to Rancho del Oso Vineyard
Owned by Betty O'Shaughnessy, this vineyard is located at the very top of Howell Mountain and is named after the red bear that climbs the deer fence and swims in the reservoir. I love the big fruit flavors and unmistakable intensity of Howell Mountain fruit. Because the tannins were nice and mature, the wine has power and suppleness at the same time. The fruit aromas and flavors are definitely in the dark cherry, blackberry category, with a touch of black plum.
