Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

98 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is deep, racy and layered from the very first taste. A large-scaled, sumptuous wine, the 2009 impresses for its exceptional balance and pure pedigree. There is plenty of flesh here, but also more than enough tannin to help balance some of the wine's more overt tendencies. A dazzling, utterly vivid finish rounds things out in style. This large-scaled, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon should be at its finest between the ages of 10 and 30. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. (Dec 2012)
