2013 Shafer one point five cabernet sauvignon from the Stags Leap district of coarse! Well, perfection dad and son! John and Doug, you guys have mastered it. The cork was in perfect condition. After a 45 min eternity of time for decanting, the color is as dark as the night sky on a stormy night in the hills of Tennessee. The legs are slow and thick. The bouquet is peppered cranberry juice with a twist of rip figs growing on the tree. The initial palate is reminiscent of buttered toast and blackberry jam. There is a hint of spice and black pepper. On the finish which is very long, I detect black coffee and dark chocolate - not the Dove version, but the bitter version. There is an fired oaky wood flavor with a blast of a maduro cigar! The finish is very dry and if I don't get a sip of water soon My tongue my shrivel up. But I need another sip first! Fantastic wine! Here is a toast to the Shafer family and to my wonderful and beautiful Dayanara on our new home! Cheers!

Soft and smooth. Not quite Hillside Select but I really like this. Soaring bouquet and lingering finish. Perfect.

Lush, velvety, ripe black cherry, cassis, cedar, cloves, cinnamon , chocolate, and peppery. Lots of life ahead of this one.

Black cherry, blackberry, tobacco, chocolate, some earthy funk and a little raspberry on the finish.

The 2013 needs a decant to really start strutting its stuff

This is tasting better than a year ago. Liking the ghost block yountville a little better right now. Those tannins still need to calm down a bit and the fruit needs to show a little more. The Barnett is the least structured and very approachable. Girlfriend and I both preferred the ghost block #1 but she had the Barnett over Shafer. 92-93

Tobacco, blackberry, cherry, medium tannins, good spice. Really smooth, lingers on the pallet. Would have been fantastic with the steak
