SHAFER MERLOT, NAPA VALLEY 2014

Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

92 Points

Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots. The 2014 Merlot includes 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and is a beauty. Mocha and chocolaty notes intermixed with red cherry, plum and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this perfumed and fragrant style of Merlot. It is medium to full-bodied, exceptionally pure and rich and should drink beautifully over the next 10-12 years of life.

Cellar Selection
Tart black cherry meets plum, strawberry and clove, while softened tannins belie the wine's overall density and sense of generosity. A smoky waft of cigar amplifies the power and sinewy nature of the full-bodied wine, which is ready to lie down for a rest. Enjoy best 2020 through 2024. DATE PUBLISHED 6/1/2017 VIRGINIE BOONE

Dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol, licorice and gravel are beautifully delineated in Shafer's 2014 Merlot. This is a somewhat brisk, linear style, but it works nicely. Savory overtones add aromatic intensity and lift throughout. There is plenty to like, but readers should expect a slightly more reserved Merlot than is the norm here. Drink 2017 - 2022 Antonio Galloni Dec 2016
