Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 1985

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

With a finished PH of 3.41 (still too low for any top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon), this wine's rich fruit is able to fight its way through the wall of tartness. The healthy, medium to dark ruby/purple color is followed by an elegant yet restrained nose... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 750ml
