Firm fresh and very long. At once big and subtle. In comparison with the '96 this wine substantial dusty tannins reach more of the mouth. Not as extravagantly dense and ripe as the '94 but compelling cabernet nevertheless and likely to be long-lived. 93(+?) points

At the top of this estate's qualitative hierarchy are their Cabernet Sauvignons. The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap District is an elegant yet authoritatively-flavored wine with copious amounts of cassis fruit spicy smoky oak medium body and excellent restrained but well-balanced personality. It is a nicely-extracted fleshy complex wine for drinking during its first 10-15 years of life. Another of Napa's finest wineries Shafer has taken full advantage of a succession of superlative vintages during the nineties producing a powerful portfolio of brilliant wines. Since 1991 just about everything emerging from Shafer Vineyards has been high on buyers' lists. All things considered Doug and John Shafer are at the top of their game.
