1994 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select Stags Leap District

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) This is classic Cabernet Sauvignon from our rugged hillsides, exuding dramatic, rich color, high-toned, elegant aromas and full, refined flavors of dark cherry, cassis, espresso, sweet vanilla and wet earth with enticing rose pedal, cranberry, blueberry, oregano and sage. The lush, mouthfilling complexity in your glass is completed with ripe, smooth-textured tannins and a persistent finish that won’t let go.

    This deeply drafted, optimally ripened wine won enthusiastic recommendation when first released, and it remains our favorite Hillside Select of the 1990s. It has developed layer upon layer of real varietal complexity, and its broad sweep of sweet oak only serves to enrich its wealth of juicy, curranty fruit. It is a big, very rich, uncommonly well-proportioned wine whose integral tannins assure another ten years or more of peak drinkability. Originally reviewed at ***
