Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Shafer opens with a pleasant red cherry and craisin bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and oak blend with notes of nicely integrated minerality I also detected hints of black tea and a touch of black cherry towards the end. The finish is dry and it sails on for a very long time. I would pair this Cab with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The vintage gave us ripe, beautiful fruit with abundant aromas and flavors. Round, rich, and smooth, this classic, precision Cabernet is aromatic in the glass, and complex and compelling in the mouth serving up layer upon layer of red and black fruit: red plum, briar and bramble fruit, black cherry, summer berry compote, and pomegranate with a touch of savory herbs. The tannins are structured and ripe, promising a long, delicious life in your cellar.
