2013 Shafer Vineyards Sunspot VineyardCabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Stags Leap District
After tasting over 200 lots during the 2015 auction, there was one that stood out among the rest. The 2013 Shafer Sunspot Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon was the cream of the crop, and we weren't going home without it. After the paddles came down and the bidding war was over (and the lot was ours!), we ran into winemaker Elias Fernandez who stated emphatically that the lot was the best wine Shafer has ever produced since their famed 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon. Now that's high praise!
With only 60 bottles in existence, this is one of the rarest bottlings ever produced by Shafer Vineyards and we're the only place you can get it. Sourced exclusively from the Sunspot Vineyard, this is one of the key blocks that makes up Shafer's legendary Hillside Select. If you're a true collector of Napa Cabernet, you need this in your cellar. Follow this crimson white rabbit into the depths of wine wonderland. The clock is ticking... don't be late for this very important date with liquid destiny!
