Shafer Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot.
'One of California's most popular luxury priced Merlots is also one of the state's best.''
' Richard Nalley, Forbes

To deliver a wine loaded with color, extract and concentration, Shafer vineyard crews pass through the vine rows a number of times as harvest approaches cutting away less-ripe and under-developed fruit. This allows the vitality of the vine to focus on the remaining top-quality fruit. With added hang time, sugars and flavors increase markedly.

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Shafer's Merlots are always among the richer and riper versions to be had, and, even though coming from a challenging year, this one has the fruity volume to go with its chocolaty ripeness and abundant sweet oak. It is fleshy and full, and it ends with a bit of hard-to-ignore heat, and, if arguably open to criticism as being a little too much of a good thing, it is very deep and has richness to spare. It will hold up with age yet is tasty right now, and, whether enjoyed now or later, it is one to match up with heartier, full-flavored fare.

Bottle Size: .750
