Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 1999

External Review:

...1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is brilliant. Small quantities (7% of each) of Cabernet Franc and Merlot have been added to the blend, giving the wine more aromatic breadth and flavor dimension. Dense and rich, with high extraction, sweet fruit, full... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

A gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon, Shafer's 1994 displays a dark purple color, as well as sweet, floral-scented, cassis fruit intermixed with subtle new oak and minerals. Medium to full-bodied, spicy, and exceptionally pure, with a nicely layered texture... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

However, in the mouth the wine is superb, exhibiting far greater richness, in... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Elegant and polished, but plenty of tannin to carry the cedary, tobacco-tinged Cabernet flavors of currant and plum through to a long finish.
