Heiner Lobenberg über:
Napa Chardonnay Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch 2013


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


Parker über: Napa Chardonnay Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch

-- Parker: The 2013 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch looks like one of their all-time greats, and to date they’ve all been very impressive wines. The crisp tangerine, honeyed citrus, pear and white peach notes are prominent in this beautifully fruited medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that shows additional orange marmalade notes in the mouth. It’s textured, crisp acid, from having not gone though malolactic, gives it focus and zest, and the overall impression is one of brilliant richness subtly touched by smoke, but letting the fruit dominate. 94/100


Galloni über: Napa Chardonnay Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch

-- Galloni: -- Galoni: The 2013 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is gorgeous. Lemon oil, white flowers, mint and chamomile meld together in a layered, beautifully expressive Chardonnay endowed with real class and personality. A kick of acidity on the finish keeps the flavors bright and focused throughout. This is a fabulous effort from Shafer. Most of the attention at Shafer falls on the Cabernets, and perhaps rightly so, but the estate has done a commendable job with the Chardonnay in recent years. 93/100
