A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with an opaque purple color and perfumed aroma of blackberry compote, orange blossom, cassis, creme brulee, and cocoa; the wine is plush concentrated on the palate with well-integrated tannins and a vibrant finish. Lush enough to be consumed now and structured enough to hold for decades, thanks to the mountain heritage of this beautiful wine.
| Critical Acclaim
Wine Enthusiast 97: This wine is such an outstanding wine at any price, but here we're talking about exceptional value as well. Iron and crushed rock notes lead to a lengthy balance of juicy red fruit and clove. Small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Saint-Macaire, and Cabernet Franc show a deft hand at blending, with lasting notes of black pepper and subtle oak. Editors' Choice.
James Suckling 93: This wine has the aromas of dried blueberries, currants, chocolate, sandalwood, and black tea. It's full-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Rich in flavor with a saline edge on the finish. Try from 2022.
Vinous 93: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is such a classy wine. So rich, abundant, and generous, 2018 is a fabulous choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. Black cherry, plum, spice, new leather, chocolate, and licorice are all kicked up in this boisterous Cabernet from O'Shaughnessy. Best after 2023.
Decanter 92: A rich, dark, sweet nose of blackberry syrup charred pine needles and cocoa. A wonderfully plush, concentrated, and precise palate, swinging into a high-toned, arid, sturdy but vibrant finish. Lush enough to be consumed now but structured enough to hold for the next decade or so. 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Saint Macaire.
