Shafer 2005 Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap District)

The '05 Hillside Select is overwrought. It's certainly a big, ripe, softly juicy wine, rich and flavorful. Yet it offers little right now beyond jammy blackberries, cherries and chocolate and loads of sweet, smoky oak. Lacks subtlety and complexity in favor of sheer power.
