Shafer Vineyards Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2000
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.
From a modest beginning of 1,000 cases in 1978, the winery has grown steadily until reaching its present size of 32,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Syrah. Today Shafer wines are available in major markets nationwide and in many foreign markets.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

External Reviews for Shafer Vineyards Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon Napa
...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
