Lobenberg: Ein Weißwein für Rotweinliebhaber nennen die Shafers diesen Wein nicht zu Unrecht! Cremige Struktur, respektabler Körper und dabei Frucht und Säure. 93-94/100

Katalog über: Napa Chardonnay Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch

-- Katalog: -- Parker: The 2011 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch has a similar aromatic and flavor profile as the 2010 with more textural richness and oiliness because of the presence of botrytis in this vintage. I have to say, the 2011 is highly intriguing. It will be interesting to see where the wine goes over the coming years. 90-92/100

Internet über: Napa Chardonnay Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch

-- Internet: -- Galloni: Tangerine, white flowers, mint and sweet spices all meld together in the 2011 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch. The flavors are beautifully layered in a sexy, supple Chardonnay that is surprisingly creamy and generous for the year. There is a lot to like here. The 2011 was done 75% in oak and 25% in steel, and the malolactic fermentation was blocked, an approach that has delivered consistently brilliant results at Shafer for a number of years. 91/100

Shafer Vineyards

Shafer Vinyards im Stags Leap District ist zweifellos eine der amerikanischen Vorzeige-Stories schlechthin. John R. Shafer hing in den frühen 70er Jahren mit 50 seinen alten Bürojob als Marketing-Experte an den Nagel und wollte Wein machen.
