This is one of the most amazing Cabernets available. It bursts with flavor!! The wine has has real staying power - the flavor lasts for 90 seconds. Subtle flavors include currant, berry with a smooth glycerin finish.

This wine was a monolithic beast. It showed a wall of oak that never really dissapated. Hard to get a read for a few reasons. (Fifth of the night w/3+ drinkers). Needs a ton of time.

Shafer's flagship wine is the 2,000 case cuvee of Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 32 months in 100% new French oak prior to bottling, it is one of the world's greatest Cabernet Sauvignons. The perfect, incredibly flamboyant and aro... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2002 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 750ml

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon displays an attractive, sweet nose of cassis fruit, high class cigar tobacco, loamy soil, and subtle oak followed by an elegant, medium-bodied, long finish. This is a beauty to drink over the next 8-10 years.

...One of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons to date from Shafer is the 2002, a beautifully made wine that shows a dense ruby purple color and a big, sweet nose of flamboyant black currant fruit intermixed with hints of chocolate, tobacco, earth, and oak...

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select was performing even better this year than it was last year. While not as weighty and ageworthy as some of the more hallowed vintages, it is a seriously endowed wine. Deep ruby/purple to the rim, with a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite, spice, and cedar, it is more forward than most vintages, but full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully seductive. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.
