O'Shaughnessy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$74.99

94 points - limited                          A blockbuster small-production Napa Cabernet from Howell Mountain - very limited. 94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "O'Shaughnessy's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is one of the very best values readers will find in top-notch Napa Valley Cabernet. A host of dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco give the 2014 a good deal of aromatic complexity to balance the natural richness of the year. Unlike the single-vineyard Cabernets, the Napa Valley bottling will drink well pretty much upon release. This is an absolutely impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon from O'Shaughnessy and winemaker Sean Capiaux." Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Terrific compliment to salted dark chocolate carmels. One of the best cabs we had in a while. Worth every sip.

After 45 minutes of breathing some really nice notes are starting to emerge: cedar, dark chocolate shavings, espresso, leather, cinnamon-dusted plums, and nuanced vanilla and menthol. Looking forward to seeing how it opens up once more time has elapsed. EDIT: Over two hours in and I’d say it’s fully expressing itself. Excellent wine.

2014 vintage. The perfumed nose announces that this is not your average Napa cab. Light/medium body. Mostly cab with small amounts of merlot, malbec and petit verdot. That perfumed petit verdot comes full circle on the finish adding a velveteen layer. Pretty and with really nice acidity.

Beyond late night... friends??? ;) While drinking wine and rum is questionable, rating them is not.
