Decent. There is complexity here although this wine is a touch hot for me. Nice butterscotch like finish to it. Id love a 13% abv version of this.

Excellent evening spent with great people, and the wine decided to step up to the plate! I don't have a lot of experience with Shafer, but when I have, it's never disappointed. This merlot was powerful...could smell the cherries and menthol a few feet away. Dark color with medium legs. Definitely a bit of spice to it, and the dark fruits worked well with the small bit of Petit Verdot.

Not my usual big bold red I yearn for but as a Merlot I would highly recommend - back in hometown wine shoppe and needed some chill juice - this will give me a little smile which is better than no smile at all!!!!!
