Perhaps one of the most remarkable and well-known American wineries is Shafer Vineyards. The place is a straight-up institution. What’s arguably most remarkable is that the same core staff have been working together, producing these astounding wines for over 40 years. John, his son Doug, and far too humble Elias Fernandez.
Made in a super fleshy, velvety style, the wine is so smooth out of the gate and will only be more so over the next few years.
The Wine Enthusiast agreed and already started the hit parade of big scores with a 96-point review and a coveted ‘Cellar Selection’ designation. It’s not a stretch to say this wine will be a strong contender on Top 100 lists in a few months. Enthusiast called the wine “sophisticated and concentrated” in their review and made mention of the long life ahead this wine should have, arguing it’ll hit its peak from 2027-2037. Make no mistake about it, it’s a wine that deserves a place in any collector’s cellar – especially those who love great, age-worthy Napa Cab.

96 Points, Cellar Selection – Wine Enthusiast
This sophisticated and concentrated wine wraps lovely dark plums, blueberries and cocoa flavors in velvety tannins that are well integrated and soothing, while still setting the wine up for a potentially long life. Subtle baking spices, espresso and cedar accents enhance the impressive fruit flavors. Best from 2027–2037.
