Deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines sappy cassis, blueberry, brown spices and chocolate, plus a suggestion of dust. Great concentration and depth in the mouth; dense but juicy, with wild flavors of chocolate covered cherry, mocha, leather and game.... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

A dark, dense and potent youngster, with a tight core of juicy blackberry and black cherry fruit that's deeply concentrated and supported by firm, ripe, integrated tannins. It's still a little awkward, so decanting is advised.--California Cabernet '7... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1994 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 1500ml

Deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines sappy cassis blueberry brown spices and chocolate plus a suggestion of dust. Great concentration and depth in the mouth; dense but juicy with wild flavors of chocolate covered cherry mocha leather and game. Pliant multilayered and seamless. A classic California cabernet already displaying an extravagant personality. Slightly tight but very long on the finish. This was a knockout from barrel 18 months ago and I m happy to report that it s every bit as good in the bottle. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
