Nose of dark cherry and some smoky, charred qualities. Just a hint of licorice. Powerful nose. On the palate, it's much lighter, exhibiting some pinot noir fruit. Some currant and light vanilla as well. Lots of red berries. It's a pretty merlot. - Tasted at Khoury's 6/2/10

The 2007 Merlot (a 10,000-case cuvee that includes 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) may be the finest Merlot I have ever tasted from Shafer. Reasonably priced for a Napa Valley Merlot, it is characterized by elegance and substance. Its dark ruby/purple hue is... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

A classically styled Merlot, showing appealing aromas of red currant, fresh coffee bean and spice, with supple, well-structured plum, graphite and toasty leather flavors that firm up on the finish.
