O'Shaughnessy Estate is one of Napa's most cherished wineries, boasting the most loyal mailing list members of anywhere in the Valley. New releases sell-out in the blink of an eye, and owner Betty O'Shaughnessy loves to host members at the Estate with annual parties which are second to none!
This close relationship is the envy of the Valley, and a benchmark which all others strive for, so it's little surprise that the queue for an allocation grows longer with each vintage. O'Shaughnessy produces three Cabernet Sauvignons, the most prized of which is the sublime yet rare Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon.
With the 2019 vintage, mother nature's generosity finally meant a large enough production (still only 1,800 cases) for us to bring a handful back to the UK. This is a rare occurrence as we've been working in partnership with O'Shaughnessy for almost a decade now, and 2019 is just the 4th vintage of Mount Veeder to be exported.
This truly special wine comes from the Estate's remote 'Betty's Vineyard', hidden among the steep, forested slopes of Mount Veeder. This complex, demanding terroir and cool climate is reflected in the wines, as you can see in Antonio Galloni's glowing 97+ point review below.
We're really excited to see the return of the O'Shaughnessy Mount Veeder Cabernet to the UK, and can't recommend highly enough that you snap some up at the winery-release price as a sell-out is guaranteed.
We’ve also managed to secure some additional cases of the gorgeous Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, following our sell-out offer earlier last year. And, never underestimate the stunning Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon!
