Description

Shafer's most famous and coveted wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from their hillside, organically farmed vineyards in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. The wine is aged for four years before release, three years in French oak barrels and 15 months in bottle and is known for its formidable structure. It is built for long-term aging and will easily go 20+ years if properly cellared. Of the 2017 vintage, winemaker, Elias Fernandez, declares, "… a beautiful reflection of both its rugged vineyard site and an ideal vintage. Room-filling, energetic aromas of juicy, dark fruit and white flowers are completed by complex, youthful core-flavors of blackberry, cassis, and black cherry along with delicate herbs, graphite, and smoke. The wine is smooth and balanced as it moves through the mouth. The texture is seamless and light on its feet with classic Stags Leap District tannins that are ripe and ready for aging. There’s a lot of lush, vivid pleasure in the bottle now with more to come with a few years in a good cellar.”
