Wine & Cheese of the Week: O'Shaughnessy & Grilled Cheese at Hog Island
Pics from http://www.oshaughnessywinery.com/
O'Shaughnessy is such a great stop if you are tasting on the mountain. It's definitely off the beaten path and you feel like you've seriously accomplished something when you find the place. Really nice people, beautiful grounds and picnic area, cool cave tour, impressive wine collection and most importantly - great wine. We only tasted two wines, but they were both fantastic. They only produce a couple thousand cases a year and they were sold out of a lot of stuff when we visited. Here's what we tried:
2008 Howell Mountain Cabernet - $75 (94+ points Robert Parker)
2006 Mount Veederr Cabernet - $130
Looking forward to going back to try more of their wines!
