Shafer's 2011 Merlot jumps from the glass with dark cherries, spices, sage, mint and licorice. There is good juiciness and depth in the Merlot. The 2011 is a bit darker in tonality than the 2010. This is a terrific effort for the year. The 2011 is 76% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.

From one of the most difficult vintages in our history comes a wine that richly rewards all our efforts from fragrant aroma through the round, full mouth to its long, polished finish this wine offers both layered complexity and easy-to-love juiciness. In the nose and mouth I get so many scents and flavors red and black cherry, red and black plum, smoke, white pepper, sage, oregano and wet earth. This lush package is kept together in a structure of fine, ripe tannins.
