OSHAUGHNESSY NAPA CABERNET 2018


This wine is getting quite a bit of talk around the valley and far beyond as it is the only Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon made from estate vineyards on Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain and Oakville. Yes, these are the same vineyards we use for our Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder bottlings. The Oakville vineyard resides between our esteemed neighbors on the Oakville Cross Road and has been given a lot of time and attention by Sean and the team over the last several years to truly maximize this site. Our Napa Cabernet is often taken home by the staff and is currently a favorite of Betty and Paul's. They particularly enjoy it with a couple additional years of cellaring.

This is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with an opaque purple color and perfumed aromas of blackberry compote, orange blossom, cassis, creme brulee, and cocoa. On the palate the wine is plush and concentrated with well-integrated tannins and a vibrant finish. Lush enough to be consumed now and structured enough to hold for decades thanks to the mountain heritage of this beautiful wine.

This is such an outstanding wine at any price, but here we're talking about outstanding value as well. Notes of iron and crushed rock lead to a lengthy balance of juicy red fruit and clove. With small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Saint-Macaire and Cabernet Franc, it shows a deft hand at blending, with lasting notes of black pepper and nuanced oak. Editors’ Choice.

This has aromas of dried blueberries, currants, chocolate, sandalwood and black tea. It’s full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Rich in flavor with a saline edge on the finish. Try from 2022.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is such a classy wine. Rich, opulent and generous, the 2018 is a fabulous choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. Black cherry, plum, spice, new leather, chocolate and licorice are all kicked up in this boisterous Cabernet from O'Shaughnessy. Best after 2023.

A decadent, dark and sweet nose of blackberry syrup, charred pine needles and cocoa. A wonderfully plush, concentrated and clear palate, swinging into a high-toned, very dry, sturdy but vibrant finish. Lush enough to be consumed now, but structured enough to hold for the next decade or so. 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Saint Macaire.
