2007 Shafer Merlot Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Merlot is a richly aromatic, elegant wine that comes with layer upon juicy layer of lush red and black jam fruits – cherry, plum, currant – and dark chocolate, black tea, smoke and spice. The tannins are ripe and smooth with a finish that takes its time letting you go.

    (From 2000 Vintage) #36 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2002."Smooth-textured, with polished currant, mocha, cranberry and cherry, plus touches of tobacco, coffee and spice. A bit tough-edged with tannin, but certainly not out of line for a young wine. Best from 2003 through 2009. 10,000 cases made. (JL)"
