1991 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesWe liked this wine when first released some dozen years back, and we like it even more now. While it still shows a trace of herbaceousness, it is simply loaded with deep, well-extracted fruit and rich oak, and it is every inch Cabernet in terms of its solid structure. If anything, it still needs some years in the cellar, and we can see it improving for another decade or more. Originally reviewed at **.
