Producing high quality grapes in the Finger Lakes for 36 years, winemaker Steve Shaw contributing to the regionís growth and emergence as a world-class producer of vinifera wines. After learning the wine making craft during the 1990s, Steve Shaw founded the Shaw Vineyard label in 2002 and in 2004 built his production facility and tasting room on the western shore of Seneca Lake near Himrod, NY. The winery grows most of the grapes and sources the rest from the highest-quality Finger Lakes growers. Employing careful and unique methods in the production process, Shaw Vineyard have been producing wines that exhibit complexity and full flavors with balance and elegance. The particular yeast strains used in primary fermentation are chosen for their unique properties in enhancing the flavors of the grapes as they are converted into wine.

Created from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon produced in their own vineyard as well as sourced grapes from some of the highest-quality growers of the Finger Lakes region, Shaw Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a dark ruby colored wine offering intense aromas of black currant, fresh herbs, delicate cocoa and lightly toasted nuts followed by a medium bodied palate with velvety tannins and harmonious aromas of ripe black plums, cassis and light vanilla. Subtle notes of cocoa and tobacco lingers through the long, complex finish.

"Aged four years in oak, this stately wine is adorned with layers of maple sugar, toast and smoked nuts, but its racy sour-cherry flavors shine through brightly. The backbone of this wine is taut with acidity, but bold, richly textured mouthfeel puts the palate at ease. Itís sumptuous and revitalizing." - Wine Enthusiast
