Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch Rich and creamy, both in flavor and texture, bold and extracted, with fleshy fig, apricot and light nutmeg shadings. Yet for all its power it offers a sense of elegance and balance. Drink now through 2011.J.L. March 12, 2008The 2006 chardonnay (25% aged in steel barrels and the balance in wood) is an even larger cuvee of 6,300 cases. Medium to full-bodied with notes of honeyed pineapple, nectarine, and some spice, the wine exhibits good acidity, purity, and plenty of length. Drink it over the next several years. One of Napas most prominent and respected wineries, Shafer is a poster boy for remarkable and consistent quality across the board. All of this is the work of the brilliant father and son team of John and Doug Shafer as well as their long-term winemaker and vineyard manager, Elias Fernandez. With over 200-plus acres of estate holdings, and 55 surrounding their winery in Stags Leap, this is a winery that never seems to disappoint. Wine Advocate # 174Dec 2007 This is a California Wine

Bold, ripe and delicious, with tiers of cirtus-laced pear, pineapple, lemon drop and nectarine, yet for all its richness and depth, this is an elegantly styled wine that is graceful and polished.
