| ||Tasted by thomaskeil on 1/22/2008 & rated 86 points: Okay, this should not be in my cellar, but it was. From my first chard purchase from the Shafer mailer. Honey colored. Surprisingly good and barely a hint of oxidation, despite the color. There was fruit (albeit a small dose) and refreshing acidity. It also had a full, almost sweet palate. This was not an exercise that I would recommend, but if it happens to you, don't despair -- these hold up pretty well. (1342 views)|

John Shafer and his family founded Shafer Vineyards, located in the Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley, in 1979. From the Shafers' first wine, a 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon,
their wines have won much acclaim. Today, the Shafers farm 200 acres of vineyard in the Stags Leap District, Carneros and Oak Knoll regions. Their flagship wine, Hillside Select,
is produced from selected blocks of the family's hillside vineyards and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. They also produce Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay, Merlot, One Point Five
(Cabernet Sauvignon) and Relentless (a Syrah/Petite Sirah blend), which was named #1 wine of the year by Wine Spectator's "Top 100" of 2012.

California California Wines (Wine Institute of California)
California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
