Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select Stags Leap District 1993

Winemaker's Notes:

A very complete wine in a more subtle way than 1994; this one almost seems like it belongs in a line-up of our Hillside Selects from the late 1980s. Showing mature color with a brick-red rim; oak toast, plums and nice earth/mineral notes in the nose. Bright, refined fruit that has pleasing depth and finesse.
