Shafer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Member Review by Mike Pobega:

Double decanted 3.5 hours. Nice dark color with no sign of fading. The nose had subdued currants and blackberry with some floral notes. Nice. On the palate the wine walked the walk: great dark cassis with some secondaries of tar, soy, cedar-box (like a new humidor) and leather. The tannins were loosely weaved with a deft acid level. Tame nuances of light oak lingered like a feather. There was a perfect plush mouth feel that oozed class. The finish was long and clean. After reading recent noted on this I did not have high hopes, and I attribute tonight’s showing to the decant which was perfect.Pure harmony in a bottle. Elegant, exact and delish.

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is showing even better this year than it was last year. This wine sees a combination of both French and American oak. The result is a wine with loads of smoky black currant notes intermixed with some earth, tobacco, and a ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
