This is Shafer’s first vintage of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Deep Ruby with big fruit aromas of ripe black and red fruits with some floral and herbaceous notes. On the palate this wine delivers fresh blackberry, currants and complex flavors of espresso, mint and savory cinnamon. Long opulent finish, well balanced with acidity ending with fruit, toasty vanilla oak and earthy character. Wonderful!

Decent stuff, bit too ripe and lush for my liking. Nice mineral core though.

Krallig men smidig Cabernet. Ganska hög koncentration, dyr fatbetonad smakprofil. Svartvinbärsgelé, nypon, flinta, choklad, mörkrostat kaffe, blåbärsris. Stadigt tanningrepp i avslutet som adderar längd och torrhet. Bör lagras en handfull år till för att harmoniera ut.

Super aromatic. Tastes surprisingly light for a 15.3% cab. Super aromatic. Deep currant. Slight leather.

Heady AF, aromatics on steroids. Taste doesn’t translate but deeeeep black currants, hand squeezed concentrated Australian red licorice and whiffs of oaky spice.

Dark garnet color, black/red fruit on the nose, fantastic balance on the finish. Happy Birthday to me!...lol

TD-9 is good, but much more powerful, complexity different. Of course, aroma is almost same, vanilla, black currant. Taste includes blackberry and spiciness. Still has acidity, more than 1.5 hours is better. 2016 @3600, tatong - XH , 200303-200731

Great 375 ml bottle of good wine for that night when you only really need a “little” pick me up!

Yummy. Drinking well for 2016! Luscious nose. Slight boldness, elegant finish.

Not usually a fan of of Shafer products ( i know don’t hate). For New a years in Hawaii, this pair very well with my filets. Burnt black cherry rolls the palate with some sexy floral notes.
