O'Shaughnessy

O’Shaughnessy Estate Winery sits at 1,800 feet on the heralded Howell Mountain appellation in the beautiful Napa Valley.  Founded in 1996, the estate encompasses one hundred and twenty acres.
 
Winemaker Sean Capiaux has overseen the planting of the vineyard and selected numerous clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and all seven of the historic Bordeaux varietals for this unique property.
 
O’Shaughnessy Estate Winery uses modern equipment to produce non-interventionist wines that are naturally fermented and bottled unfined and unfiltered. These techniques allow the varietal character and terroir of O’Shaughnessy Estate vineyards to be the stars of the show.

A chunky 100% Merlot, the 2013 offers gorgeous toffee, black cherry and mocha notes as well as some chocolate. It has beautiful density, a plump, corpulent, medium to full-bodied texture, and a luscious finish. This is a sexpot of a Merlot fruit bomb to drink over the next 8-10 years.

2013, O'Shaughnessy Napa Cabernet Pris: 640,00 DKK
   På lager
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa is actually 72% from Mt. Veeder and 28% from Howell Mountain, and is an interesting blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 11% Malbec. This wine has a thick-looking bluish/purple color and notes of charcoal, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit with some cassis emerging. It is medium to full-bodied and exhibits impressive purity, texture and length. For a 2013, it is already drinking well, but it is capable of evolving for 15-20 years.

2013, O'Shaughnessy "Howell Mountain" Cab Pris: 800,00 DKK
   På lager
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is O’Shaughnessy’s largest cuvée of wine, nearly 3,300 cases from her vineyard, with a final blend that is somewhat unusual - 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Carménère, and a rather obscure one, 3% St. Macaire.
Dense purple in color, with notes of mulberry, blackberry, graphite and spring flowers, the wine has great fruit, a dense, full-bodied mouthfeel, and wonderfully sweet, well-integrated tannin. The acidity is sound, the purity impressive, and the wine long and reassuring.
Drink it over the next 20+ years.

95 Points.
2013, O'Shaughnessy "Mt. Veeder" Cab Pris: 1.100,00 DKK
   På lager
The blockbuster 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% from Mt. Veeder.
This is magnificent, with blue and black fruits galore, a dense, opaque purple color, and notes of creamy oak interwoven with enormous quantities of highly extracted fruit and velvety tannins in a voluptuously textured, multi-layered stunner.
This wine still shows plenty of grip and tannin, so give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30 years.
This is a big-time winner.

2014, O'Shaughnessy Howell Mt. Cabernet Sauvignon Pris: 840,00 DKK
   På lager
Her 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes 56% from her holdings on Mt. Veeder and 44% from the home vineyard on Howell Mountain. It is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is another beauty, with a deep blue/purple color and notes of blueberry, blackberry, licorice, charcoal and a touch of graphite. It is full-bodied, nicely layered, with velvety tannin and 2014's signature up-front, irresistible fruit, charm and overall balance, but without compromising intensity and length. Drink it over the next 15+ years.
