If you like towering Cabernets, this one is for you. The vines that grow in Mount Veeder’s miserable soils and brilliant sunshine yield tiny grapes with a high proportion of tannic skin (a high surface area to volume ratio, if you will). O’Shaughnessy’s Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is a precise and powerful representation of the winery’s Mount Veeder estate. The O’Shaughnessy family took ownership of the estate in 2000. They now farm around 17 acres of the remote 42 acre site. The vines there are planted along steep, dry, exposed terraces where roots grow deep in search of nutrients and moisture.

Composed entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is opaque purple in the glass with deep, perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, rum raisin, and brown sugar. On the palate, it shows layers of dense berry preserves, wild bramble, and savoury tobacco tones with bright acidity and balanced tannins. This is a richly-textured and intense mountain wine that is rewarding upon release and will continue to evolve with patient cellaring.

“This red is youthful, wound-up and full of tension. Plush, polished tannins add to a weighty mouthfeel filled with deep flavours 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. “

“A vertical, soaring wine, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mount Veeder) speaks with commanding authority. Red-fleshed fruit, blood orange, dried herbs, mint, iron and savoury herbs build into a crescendo of aromas, flavours and texture. The Mount Veeder Cabernet is wonderfully vivid and so expressive.”
96 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Jan 2021

“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder showed brilliantly, with a dense purple colour 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.”
