O'Shaughnessy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the marriage of our estate properties on Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder. This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of the vintage with its lively bouquet of violets, sandalwood, wild plum and kirsch. The palate is dense and focused with integrated tannins and layers of boysenberry, crème de cassis, bittersweet chocolate and tobacco. This is a wine that immediately impresses and will have a long life in the cellar.
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has an enticing earthy/meaty/savory nose with a baked plums and crème de cassis core over chargrill and garrigue hints plus a waft of tapenade. The full-bodied palate is relatively restrained and earthy in nature, featuring muscular fruit and firm, chewy tannins, finishing on a lingering mineral note.
