Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 1991

Winemaker's Notes:

This was a fantastic vintage with lots of hang time. In the cellar we’d learned how to produce our wines with less human manipulation. Dense color in the center of the glass with red/orange at the edges, dense flavors, juicy fruit, great length, and richnes. Complexities are still developing.

Rich and plush, deeply concentrated, with complex currant, coffee and cedar, and a twinge of stalky bell pepper and green bean. Finishes with tobacco notes and firm tannins. Turns herbal, but has a long way to go.--'81/'91 California Cabernet retrosp... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1991 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 750ml
