The color is very opaque. The leg drip is 9 seconds at 3/4 glass start to 1/4 glass. The boquet is blackberry pie. There is no tanic / alcohol aroma at all. The initial palate is that of blackberry, currant, cigars, and pepper. The finish is butter. No aftertaste. It is dry, but not over done! Perfection in a wine. Finally!!!!!!!!!!! worth every penny!

Continue on the @shafervineyards train. Pure cabernet fruit. Reflects the vintage, but still fruity Cali wine. Delish!

Deep dark red. Classy nose with blueberries, cassis, cedar wood and a hint of graphite, reminescent of Pauillac. Perfect balance, real depth, well-handled oak and long aftertaste. Great effort for the vintage.2011 vintage, abv. 15,1 %. 55 euro.

A blockbuster of a cab, notes of menthol leapt out to me when first opened but an hour later cassis, black pepper, dried plum, oregano, tart black cherry and cinnamon sticks were easily distinguishable. The tannins were softer than expected but still present, leading me to believe this wine will get better with age.

This thing is a monster. Way too flashy, in a hot girl-wearing a short skirt with too much perfume-sort of way. Will be delicious in 5-7 years.
