September 28, 2016 - Worthy of the Shafer label and drinking well right now. Great flavor, balance and depth. Unclear why community has window ending this year. Good for a few more.

July 17, 2016 - Blackberry aromas. Pruney, ripe flavors. Cashmere texture. This came across more porty than the 1985 Graham VP with which we finished. 891 person found this helpful Comment

April 14, 2016 - Still very amazing. Busted a cork, but, still a great wine. Opened up with an appealing aroma of blackberry. Well balanced with smooth tannins that are supported with the deep flavors of fresh cherry, blackberry and a hint spice. As a full-bodied wine. Other than the cork... Amazing wine!
