Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

We are thrilled to offer 2007 Hillside Select as the 25th vintage of this Cabernet Sauvignon from our rugged vineyards. This release displays classic Stags Leap District beauty with rich, perfumy aromatics that seem to push out of the bottle. The flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, warm plum pie, dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla are elegant and mouthfilling. The tannins are ripe and refined, holding out great promise for decades of cellar age. Hillside Select is made of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon fruit sourced from rugged hillside vineyard blocks on our Stags Leap District Estate. Truly a "wine of a place," this Cabernet exemplifies the extraordinary richness and suppleness consistently produced in our little valley within a valley. 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.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select has the potential to be a perfect wine in 5 to 6 years. Although it has shut down since I tasted it last year, it is unquestionably Shafer's finest Hillside Select since the 2001 and 2002. It needs 2-3 year... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
