1990 Shafer Merlot Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Wine Enthusiast "Shafers Cabernet is so dominant, its sometimes forgotten how good their Merlot can be. The wines are dependably dry, rich and balanced, as the excellent 05 demonstrates. Its soft and drinkable now, but rich and sweet in tannins that frame cherry, currant, cola, licorice and vanilla flavors. Will reward cellaring through 2011."
