(2011 Vintage) The 2011 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious wine with an opaque purple blue color. Perfumed aromas of rum raisin, ground espresso, licorice, black tea, blackberry, tamari, crushed rock, and caramelizing sugar explode from the glass. On the palate dense berry flavors, black cherry cola and smoked meats intermixed with tar and rich toast make for a compelling wine that lingers in the mouth for several minutes. Muscular, but with restrained elegance, it carries the O’Shaughnessy trademark of balance and power.
