Shafer Merlot Napa 2011

Shafer Merlot Napa 750ML 2011     
Sku: A127035

Pull the cork on any bottle of Shafer Merlot and you will find a forward, stylish Merlot that takes center stage with all its appealing varietal fruit, not a Merlot that plays understudy to a Cabernet Sauvignon. Only small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are blended in to complement, but not overshadow, the Merlot itself. Taking advantage of the site-specific nature of this varietal, Shafer`s Merlot draws its grapes from selected vineyards throughout the Napa Valley, gaining complexity from the vineyard diversity. It is aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
The 2011 Merlot (76% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot) exhibits a similar dense purple color along with slightly more subdued aromas of coffee beans, black cherries, black fruits and spice. It does not reveal the viscosity, density and overall completeness of the 2010. Nevertheless, this is a successful effort in a far more challenging vintage. Drink it over the next 6-9 years.
