Product Description

JS 93 WE 91 Pts - According to James Suckling - This is juicy and flavorful with blueberry, cherry and spice character. Walnuts, violet and licorice too. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful with a purity and balance. Changes in the glass. Drink or hold. 50% new wood.

According to Wine Enthusiast - A new side project between longtime Shafer Vineyards partners Doug Shafer and Elias Fernandez, the Eighty Four wines are meant to showcase varieties outside of what they do at their day jobs. A leathery texture with juicy plum and blackberry make for a supple, enjoyable wine, laced in coconut and rocky earth. Drink now through 2020.

Winemakers Notes - Malbec is a newcomer to Napa Valley and we have been loving the challenge of taking on something new. By contrast to Petite Sirah, this wine though quite dark in color emerges from initial fermentation soft, supple and juicy. We only gave it 20 months in 50% new oak to allow it to take on a bit of heft and richness and to speak clearly of its varietal character, a generous mix of black fruit, red fruit and chocolate. 15.1% ABV.
