The small winery is managed by father/son team John & Doug Shafer. A blend of 90% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot & 3% Malbec, aged, 20 months, 100% new French oak. Beautiful fruit & floral aromas with hints of savory spice. On the palate cherry & raspberry flavors with a tight oak structure adding pepper, licorice & dusty cacao. Firm tight tannins, needs decanting now, lingering ending with fruit & slight mineral edge. Good now but 5 years of cellar rest with make wine pop! Had this with a Holiday Filet Mignon. Nice!

Color of dark ruby-purple, with a nose of blackberry jam, vanilla, and sawdust. Full-bodied with amazing balance. Nice smooth finish. Tannins are there, and grippy. This is a really nice wine. With the tannin structure and fruit in place, I could see this aging for years to come.

Six hours without rain? Taking advantage with a fire and good company. This is drinking beautifully for its young age - cherry and spice; well-rounded and integrated now. Increasingly pleased with this second-tier offering.

Decanted for a good 2hrs and that helped smooth things out. Powerful and brooding with just a touch of heat. May want to revision 5yrs to see if it’s become better integrated. Fun components, just not all in full harmony just yet.

This is young, but so approachable. Great full bodied with soft and supple tannins.
