- 96 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: "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.
Betty O’Shaughnessy bought her property on Howell Mountain in 1996, and ever since 1999 has had the very talented Sean Capiaux making her wines. Her vineyards on Howell Mountain sit at a high elevation of just under 2000 feet in the red, rocky, volcanic soils the area is known for. I have always been a big fan of these wines, as they are full-flavored but incredibly pure and well-balanced, and that has continued with her bevy of 2014s."
- 96 Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "A superb, brilliant wine, O'Shaughnessy's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder offers fabulous depth, intensity and pedigree. Bright red stone fruit, iron, scorched earth, tobacco and menthol open up in a beautifully layered, sumptuous wine that deftly balances rich fruit and mountain tannin."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||The 2014 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is a precise and powerful representation of our Mount Veeder estate. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine is opaque purple in color with deeply perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, rum raisin, and brown sugar. On the palate, this wine shows layers of dense berry preserves, wild bramble and cured meat flavors with a high tone acid and tannin balance. This is a richly textured and intense mountain wine that is rewarding upon release and will continue to evolve with cellaring.|
