O'Shaughnessy's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Bright aromatics, plush fruit and silky tannins give the 2017 much of its immediate appeal. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, spice, blood orange, and rose petal all meld together in this very pretty and engaging Cabernet; there is certainly plenty to like here. As always, the Napa Valley Cabernet is a blend of fruit from O'Shaughnessy's Oakville, Howell Mountain and Mt. Veeder ranches. 91 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous January 2020
Composed of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 5% Malbec, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes from vineyards on Mount Veeder (56%), Howell Mountain (29%) and Oakville (15%). It was aged in French oak for 22 months, 70% new. Very deep purple-black colored, the nose is just a tad broody and closed to begin, opening out to reveal notes of warm cassis, redcurrant jelly, kirsch and raspberry leaves with hints of wild mushrooms, tilled soil and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a good amount of juicy black fruits with plenty of invigorating red berry and herbal sparks and a chewy texture, finishing on an earthy note. 3,484 cases were made. 90 Points, Robert Parker's, Wine Advocate, November 2019
