“… a beautiful reflection of both its rugged vineyard site and an ideal vintage. Room-filling, energetic aromas of juicy, dark fruit and white flowers are completed by complex, youthful core-flavors of blackberry, cassis, and black cherry along with delicate herbs, graphite, and smoke. The wine is smooth and balanced as it moves through the mouth. The texture is seamless and light on its feet with classic Stags Leap District tannins that are ripe and ready for aging. There’s a lot of lush, vivid pleasure in the bottle now with more to come with a few years in a good cellar.”
— Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez

“Massively concentrated but incredibly elegant and poised, this is a wine of great energy and vibrancy. It is fabulously deep, built like a skyscraper, and set for an incredibly long life.”
— Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

“Graceful and supple, rich and loamy, tilted toward the savory, herbal side of Cabernet, with modest cherry and currant notes. Displays deft balance and hints of anise and underbrush. Complex throughout.”
— James Laube, Wine Spectator

“… a jewel of a wine … an intensely savory, mineral driven vintage for Shafer’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon.”
— Antonio Galloni,

“… a beauty that offers just about everything you could want out of wine. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, smoky oak and spice aromatics all give way to a full-bodied, concentrated, structured 2013 that has incredible fruit intensity, yet never seems heavy, over the top, or cumbersome in any way.”
— Jeb Dunnuck,

“Inky garnet in the glass, this wine smells of black cherry, dark chocolate and toasted oak. In the mouth, teeth staining black cherry and cassis flavors mix with chocolate and rich espresso notes … and the tannins velvety, voluminous and smooth.”
— Alder Yarrow,

“One of Napa Valley’s most notable 100% Cabernet Sauvignons … big, inviting aromas of balsamic an cherry-wood welcome a palate of mountain brush, tilled soil, blackberry, ad eucalyptus. A core of minerality swaths the tongue through to the Stags Leap characteristic satin finish.”
— Meridith May, The Tasting Panel
