    Winemaker's Notes:

    An elegant silky wine with soft tannins and abundant fruit, Shafer Napa Valley Cabernet is approachable when young yet capable of aging gracefully.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A masterful presentation of toasty, mocha-scented oak, accompanied by exotic wood spices, it also delivers plenty of ripe, rich, complex fruit, with concentrated layers of currant, mocha, coffee, plum and black cherry. Firmly tannic, a step up in quality for this bottling, making it more in the style of the Hillside Select.

    Wine Spectator

    The elegant, rich 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. It offers outstanding sweet black currant fruit intermixed with tobacco leaf, licorice, and minerals. The wine is pure, ripe, medium to full-bodied, and well-balanced.

    The Wine Advocate

    Medium ruby. Aromas of black cherry, licorice and tobacco, with grapey and leafy nuances. Sweeter and lusher than the '99 merlot, with layered flavors of currant, black cherry and plum. Harmonious acids give the wine excellent definition. Finishes with substantial but sweet tannins. This has turned out very well.
