“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.” – Robert Parker
One of my favorite wineries in Napa Valley, Betty O’Shaughnessy, the proprietress, bought her original vineyard on Howell Mountain in 1996 and began planting in the red, rocky, aiken volcanic soils. The elevation is a whopping 1,900 feet and is south-sloping, which is perfect for the sun exposition.
