Shafer Vineyards

Hillside Select Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

To me Shafer is among the worlds best wineries. Aged 32 months in 100% new French oak. Vivid deep purple color, and outstanding aromas of red/black fruits, cherries and blackberries, with hints of cedar, floral oak & spice. Tasting this wine was absolutely magnificent, concentrated dark berry fruit flavors, spices, leather and oak, exploding on my palate. Soft velvety subtle tannins provide a nice deep lingering finish. Truly an outstanding Cab, one of the best. If you can find yourself a bottle, do not hesitate. Should last at least 10 more yrs. β€” 3 days ago

Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This was a good decision. Cork was dry and broke up but after filtering and decanting there were great ageing Cabernet aromas right from the outset. Initially some raisiny flavours masking the fruit and depth but after an hour this was top notch. Loads of dark fruit and baking spice with oak and lavender. The palate is strong but smooth and a delicate floral note appeared after a time. Nicely mature and well worth tasting if you find a bottle from this vintage. β€” 11 days ago

A hidden gem. Same vineyard (and grapes) as Shafer Hillside Select. Deep berry, hints of dark chocolate and tobacco. Great way to watch The Players. β€” 4 days ago

Nickel & Nickel

Copper Streak Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

More Sweetie style then Snugs. Drier, not fruity or jammy. More balanced / tasty as it opens, more personality, more to it, softens. Double aerated. Needs to breathe. β€œCurrant & cassis blended with an intriguing minerality. The palate bursts with notes of cassis, chocolate, tobacco and herbs. The middle palate is thick and coating and the wine seems to expand as the velvety, yet firm, tannins carry the fruit flavors into a long and lingering finish.” β€” 3 days ago

Really love this wine. It followed several significantly aged French Grand Crus. Just a big robust Cab with black fruit and cognac hints. β€” 9 days ago
