AWARD-WINNING WINES FROM NAPA VALLEY
Tonight is your opportunity to own two fabulous showpieces— cornerstones of Napa Valley winemaking. For 40 years the Shafer family has been producing wine in the Stags Leap District, one of the most highly regarded regions within Napa Valley. This iconic family-owned winery was named one of the world’s greatest wineries by wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr. Shafer’s wines, including its signature Hillside Select are found in collectors’ cellars and on wine lists around the world. A chilly start to the 2008 vintage followed by a lengthy summer and perfectly timed warm spell in early September jumpstarted a harvest of gorgeous fruit. This six liter is ripe, silky and bursting with flavor. Just up the road from Shafer, Caymus Vineyards embraced Napa’s unique climate and soil, helping to establish the region’s singular style and reputation for Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Spectator magazine awarded Caymus Special Selection “Wine of the Year” for the 1984 And 1990 vintages—the only wine in the world to ever receive this honor twice! This outstanding 9 liter bottle showcases Caymus and the Wagner family’s stellar skills and deep roots in winemaking. Your cellar can host these beauties by raising your paddle tonight!
