Share's wines are among the most sought after in Napa Valley, and because of very limited production, their wines are almost exclusively available through the winery. However, we were able to coax a handful of cases of Shafer's recently released, outstanding 2007 Merlot to share with our members, marking the first time Shafer has worked with a wine club!
The 2007 Napa Valley Merlot hails from foothill vineyards just south of Stags Leap District and Yountville and the result is a wine with rich aromatics and elegance that comes with layer upon juicy layer of lush red and black jam fruits -- cherry, plum, currant -- and dark chocolate, black tea, smoke and spice.
Shafer's 2007 Merlot is also critically acclaimed with a 92 Point score from Wine Spectator, 90 Points from Connoisseurs' Guide, and 90 Points from Robert Parker, who says "The 2007 Merlot 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...my highest compliments to this great winery."
