Its Napa Premier Week-end!
We just arrived in Napa and tasting wine at Shafer. The 2005 Hillside Select has rich velvety fruit. Lush texture with a solid backbone and still drinking well now. The 2007 Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay has flavors of papaya, mango and cream. There is a kiss of oak but not overwhelming with good acidity.
