Flag of United States UNITED STATES

A cool growing season allowed fruit to hang on the vine in the Syrah sites of the Vaca Mountains, allowing them to develop black cherry aromas and cracked pepper spice. The palate has lots of dried black fruits that give volume and texture before a sweetly spiced finish. Named after the relentless pursuit of perfection. 5-15 years.

Shafer Vineyards

In 1972 Shafer purchased the winery which is located at the north end of the Stag’s Leap District of the Napa Valley, and their first vintage was in 1978. The ethos is small and family orientated, the approach to the wines quite European. They are one of the few wineries to have a proper barrel cellars cut into the hillside behind the winery.

In the cellar the only wood is in the barrels, everywhere else stainless steel is used to reduce the incidence of TCA. The vineyards are managed sustainably, without the need for chemical fertilisers or pesticides, and drip irrigation (common throughout California) is used. Birds of prey are encouraged to help with the gophers. Warm days and cool nights followed by morning fog adds elegance to the wines. 21 acres over 4 sites with a production of about 30,000 cases of wine per annum. They use drip irrigation (used throughout California).
