Shafer 2016 Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap District)

Cellar Selection

Given 32 months in 100% new French oak, this is a tremendously structured, perfumed and intensely powerful wine from the producer's famous estate. Full-figured and richly woven in blueberry and cassis, it shows remarkable earthiness in the form of sage, dried herb, lavender and crushed rock, with silky tannins encasing it all and a finishing touch of dark chocolate. Enjoy best from 2026 through 2036. Virginie Boone
