Food Pairings for Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon
Shafer’s hillside vineyard produced a 2003 harvest of small, dark berries loaded with ripe, immense aromas and flavors. The aromas are rich and perfumy and the youthful wine fills the mouth with rich cassis, blackberry, toasty vanilla, mocha, herbs, and a seamless integration of soft, ripe Stags Leap District tannins. The wine feels expansive and juicy in the mouth and the flavors linger long after the glass is empty. Hillside Select is aged a full four years prior to release (three years in Alliers and Tronçais oak barrels and one year in the bottle). While enjoyable today, this wine will gain richness and maturity with up to 20 years of careful cellaring.
