Food Pairings for Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District. Napa Valley
External Reviews for Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District. Napa Valley
Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Following in the Shafer tradition of very ripe and expressive wines, this one smells of black cherries, cola, graphite and an unusual suggestion of green leaves. It is full and supple on the palate, and its ripeness shows here as well, but the wine also comes with plenty of primary fruit and a good bit of range, all of which give it lots to like.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
