Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For O'Shaughnessy Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The vines from our steeply terraced, Betty's Vineyard, struggle for nourishment and moisture consistently producing clusters with small berries and intense flavors. Wines from this vineyard have been highly acclaimed through the media since our first vintage in 2002, for their power and elegance. Aromatically, we love the lavender and violet tones emanating from this property. We acquired this property in 2000 and farm only 17 acres on this remote 55-acre estate.

This Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the year with its radiant fruit and bouquet of vanilla bean, baking spices, and fresh tobacco leaf. The flavors are bright and focused with gorgeous layers of confit plum, blackberry jam and hibiscus. This expansive Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with flavors of smoked cherry wood and smooth integrated tannins.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 9/1/2021 - Rated 98:
This red is youthful, wound-up and full of tension. Plush, polished tannins add to a weighty mouthfeel filled with deep flavors of cassis and blood orange, with seasonings of sage, herbes de Provence and black and white pepper. A showcase of sophisticated complexity, it will do well in the cellar. Enjoy 2028–2038. VIRGINIE BOONE

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Tasted 1/27/2021 - Rated 96:
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder showed brilliantly, with a dense purple color as well as killer notes of blueberries, pine forest, violets, graphite, crushed stone, and lead pencil. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied, structured wine that displays the vintage's purity and freshness, building tannins, and a great finish. There's plenty of classic Mt Veeder structure, so give bottles 4-5 years if you can. It's going to evolve for 25+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck
