Shafer 1998 Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap District)

Cellar Selection

An absolute joy, and a very great success for this vintage, which produced so many disappointing Cabernets. Unusually dark. Begins closed, but swirling brings out cassis and loads of smoky oak. Dense and lush, it's incredibly long on flavor, with fabulous intensity. The reputation of this collector's wine is undiminished. Cellar Selection. —S.H.
