2014 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2014 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is a precise and powerful representation of our Mount Veeder estate. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine is opaque purple in color with deeply perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, rum raisin, and brown sugar. On the palate, this wine shows layers of dense berry preserves, wild bramble and cured meat flavors with a high tone acid and tannin balance. This is a richly textured and intense mountain wine that is rewarding upon release and will continue to evolve with cellaring.
"A superb, brilliant wine, O'Shaughnessy's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder offers fabulous depth, intensity and pedigree. Bright red stone fruit, iron, scorched earth, tobacco and menthol open up in a beautifully layered, sumptuous wine that deftly balances rich fruit and mountain tannin."

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and usually my favorite from Betty O’Shaughnessy. She produces just under 1,200 cases of this wine, which has the classic blueberry, blackberry and acacia flower nose that comes from the high elevations of this wild and backward mountain area in southern Napa Valley. Dense bluish/purple to the rim, with loads of blueberries on the palate, big-time glycerin, sweet tannin, low acidity and a long, layered finish, this is terrific wine to drink now and over the next 20-25 years."
