Shafer Vineyards Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Seems to be in a quiet phase, even so the wines shows a nice range of aromatics — black fruit, pepper, mineral, sweet-spicy vanilla and dense purple-midnight color. Beginning to show pleasing age characteristics of cedar and tobacco. A core of sweetness and supple, sweet tannins from our small-berried hillside fruit spread a chocolate-like rounded feel in the mouth and offer a lengthy finish.

...a seriously endowed wine. Deep ruby/purple to the rim, with a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite, spice, and cedar, it is more forward than most vintages, but full-bodied, concentrated, and beautifully seductive... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2000 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 750ml
