2011 Shafer Chardonnay, “Red Shoulder Ranch,” Napa Valley

Shafer Chardonnay Red shoulder ranchFred Tasker, in the Miami Herald, picked out this wine from his review of 2011 Californian Chardonnay, writing: “Shafer Vineyards grows its Chardonnay in Napa’s cool Carneros area for intense fruit, foregoes the secondary fermentation, but ages 75% of it in expensive French oak barrels, achieving a superb complexity of flavours.”

He added of this wine: “Subtle hint of oak, complex, shifting aromas and flavours of ripe tropical fruits and citrus, flan-like opulence, crisp, tart finish.”
