    Winemaker's Notes:

    With more herbs, cedar and tea than its '97 sibling, this one offers ripe aromatics and elegantly balanced fruit flavors. Uncork this vintage and you'll find deep color in the center of the glass with a ring of brick at the edge, with a silky texture and maturing fruit, showing elements of black currant and dark spice with a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Since 1991, Shafer's Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon has unquestionably been one of the top dozen or so California Cabernets. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged 32 months in 100% French oak casks (the majority Taransaud), it possesses the elegance and finesse one would expect from the Stags Leap area, but also monumental power, richness, and intensity.
