“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is gorgeous.
Vibrant and focused, with tons of savory energy, the Napa Valley Cabernet is once again a huge overachiever in this range.
An exotic mélange of black cherry, plum, pomegranate, blood orange, chocolate, savory herb, leather and sage builds into the deep, resonant finish.
Most of this fruit is young-vine Cabernet from the Wools Ranch on Mt. Veeder.
O'Shaughnessy's Napa Valley Cabernet is the hidden gem in this range and also one of the very finest wines in its peer group. Don't miss it.”

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 3% St. Macaire, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals notions of scorched earth, tar, tilled black soil and fungi over a core of blackcurrant cordial, aniseed, dark chocolate and expresso plus a waft of tobacco. Full bodied, concentrated and very earthy in the mouth, the rich, black fruits are superbly framed by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.”
