James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2011
For a barrel sample this is very pretty with bright fruit and firm tannins. Muscular structure in this a very clean and gorgeous wine.

Complex aromas of cassis dark chocolate licorice minerals and spicy oak plus a hint of game. Pliant and layered on the palate with an insidious penetrating quality to the seamless cassis game mineral and licorice flavors. A floral element gives lift to this primary but varietally expressive wine. Finishes long and suave with fine tannins. Delicious now but capable of aging for a decade or more. A terrific vintage for this bottling.

It's offering little beyond exceptionally rich ripe flavors of blackberries black currants and dark chocolate. It's almost like a Port wine whose high alcohol is an integral part of the package. Shows the dramatic flair of all Shafer's red wines but you might want to cellar it for 5-6 years. - S.H.

This is a soft layered elegant cabernet even as it delivers a bath of chocolate-rich tannins and juicy dark fruit. Somehow it manages to pack in plenty of alcohol and discretion at the same time the combination reading as exotic spice. A cushy pleasure to serve with short ribs.

Rustic with a chewy edge to the loamy earth and cedar. The core currant and dark berry flavors are intense and concentrated and this ends with chunky tannins. Fans of that rustic character will happily chew through this... Rustic with a chewy edge to the loamy earth and cedar. The core currant and dark berry flavors are intense and concentrated and this ends with chunky tannins. Fans of that rustic character will happily chew through this. Best from 2013 through 2022. -JL
