Shafer 2003 Last Chance Firebreak Red (Napa Valley)

Editors' Choice

The name refers to Shafer discontinuing this wine, which is 92% Sangiovese, with the balance Cabernet. Sangiovese, it seems, doesn't sell. What a pity, because it's one of the best super Tuscan wines in California. The '03 is extraordinarily rich and complex, a fruit-forward wine but no bomb. It's controlled in every respect. Some of us will miss it.
