“Year in year out Shafer consistently delivers silky smooth Chardonnay guaranteed to impress California white wine devotees. This 2018 Red Shoulder Ranch is another winner featuring a plethora of delicious fruit flavors including fresh pineapple, nectarine, ripe apricot, pear, mango, tangerine and honeysuckle, yet so refreshing and dense with minerality on the finish. Bravo.” - California Wine Advisors

“This robust, full-bodied white holds its weight and pedigree remarkably well, offering an intensely flavored, richly layered experience that seamlessly provides freshness along the way. Apple, cinnamon and nutmeg are complemented by toasted oak and lasting structure.” - Wine Enthusiast
