SOLD-OUT – O’Shaughnessy Winemaker Sean Capiaux Pinot Noir – Super Rare – Only 6 Cases!

Many of you have heard about O’Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon….the reviews are stellar, and the wines usually sell-out very quickly. When they receive 97+ point reviews, they never make it to the shelves.

O’Shaughnessy’s winemaker Sean Capiaux has the unique ability to make a modern, fully-throttled and extracted wines with enough balance and finesse to a wide range of wine aficionados! He was the founding winemaker of the estate in 2001, and has remained at the helm.

20 years ago Sean started his own winery, focussing only on pinot noir WAY before the movie Sideways made pinot America’s favorite wine.

In recent month’s we’ve added Sean’s Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir to our shelves, and they’re already sold-out!  We have a rare opportunity at just 6 cases of the 2012 Sean Capiaux Pinot Noir from Pisoni Vineyard in Santa Lucia Highlands, California.

Pisoni Vinyard is to Pinot Noir what some of the bolder sites Napa are for Cabernet Sauvignon.  Pisoni vineyard wines are always big and bold, and this is somewhat ironic as the original plantings come from Vosne Romanee’s priced La Tache vineyard in Burgundy….how those cuttings arrived in California is a longer story!

Tasting Notes:

In the hands of Sean Capiaux, the Pinot Noir from Gary Pisoni’s vineyard magnificent!  2012 vintage, full-bodied with fantastic balance, the Alcohol Level is 15.3%, but you wouldn’t know it.  Think Martinelli or Belle Glos single vineyard Pinots (the ones with the wax tops) but slightly less thick with a perfect line of acidity holding everything together.

300 Cases were produce from just over one acre of vineyard land. Grab a few bottles to add to your collection or bring out for a Holiday gathering. This wine is great today, right out of the bottle and improves with a bit of time in the decanter.
