    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Mt. Veeder is a serious wine with an opaque purple blue color. Perfumed aromas of blueberry pie, blackberry, licorice, crème brulee, smoked meats, iodine and brown sugar jump out of the glass. On the palate dark, dense berry flavors, black cherry syrup intermixed with tar and smoke make for a compelling taste that lingers in the mouth for several minutes. Muscular but with restrained elegance it carries the O'Shaughnessy trademark of balance and power.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is impeccable from start to finish. It shows marvelous detail and completeness in its perfumed red berries, mint, flowers and licorice. Tar, ash and a host of other darker nuances add considerable complexity. This is a marvelous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

    Good bright ruby-red. Slightly higher-toned on the nose than the Howell Mountain offering, with sexy oak spices lifting aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Offers noteworthy intensity to its dusty spice and blackberry flavors. Fatter and sweeter than the Howell Mountain bottling. Finishes with lovely ripe tannins and building length. The tannins here make those of the Howell Mountain come off as a bit clenched. This is excellent.
