2019 Cambria, Katherines Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley
Nestled in the refreshing coastal ridges of the Santa Maria Valley, Cambria wines showcase the unique character of each vineyard, adhering to sustainable farming practices and crafted exclusively from Estate-grown grapes.

The flagship Chardonnay undergoes fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and barrels, ensuring the preservation of its fresh flavours and aromatics while introducing texture and complexity. Sur lie aging for 5.5 months in 20% new oak contributes to its nuanced profile, and the wine is carefully blended and bottled after being racked out of barrels.

Notably, 85% of this exceptional wine comes from vines planted in the 1970s.

Boasting a harmonious and lively character, this wine harmoniously melds citrus and stone fruit notes with subtle hints of vanilla and crème brûlée.
Crafted exclusively from the fog-kissed vines of Katherine’s Vineyard, named after proprietor Katie Jackson in 1986, this elegant, and distinctive wine draws its essence from ancient soils enriched with fossilized seashells, limestone, and sand.

Winemaker's notes:
“Fresh fruit and ¬oral aromas dominate the nose and palate; white peach, lemon zest, pear, granny smith apple and citrus blossoms. The oak in¬fluence creates a nice mid-palate that balances nicely with the bright acidity that lingers.”
– Jill Russell, Winemaker

2010 Shafer Vineyards Hillside Select Stags Leap District Napa Valley
“A remarkable wine, the 2010 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select has gone from strength to strength since it was in cask. It is stunningly rich, with classic, fragrant notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, vanilla, graphite and spring flowers. It exhibits an opaque purple color, with a full-bodied, massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness, and again, a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. It’s classic California Cabernet, but beautifully put together, showing impeccable craftsmanship and fabulous potential. This is obviously a very young, infantile style of Cabernet that won’t hit its prime for at least another decade and last close to half a century, based on how older vintages that were less well-endowed have matured from Shafer.”
100 Pts, Wine Advocate (RP) (12/2014)

“The Shafer family has made compelling reds for decades and this one is a knock-out. Fabulous character of currants, mint, spice and wet earth. Juicy and fruity, with an intense chewy finish. Needs time to age.”

1992 Stags’ Leap Winery, Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
"This has a perfumed, cassis and blueberry nose. The palate is seamless and very harmonious, its richness belying the firm tannins underneath. Very complex, quite backward and tight even after 10-years. Long-term wine that needs time to show its flair. This may overtake the ’91 in time."
