*9R* 2016 Shafer "Hillside Select" Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District (Napa Valley, CA)
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Napa Valley, California
100 Points, The Wine Advocate
Drink 2022 - 2062
"Very deep, vibrant purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select strides confidently out of the glass with expressive notions of blueberry preserves, Black Forest cake, cassis and cedar chest with touches of pencil lead, licorice, violets and sandalwood plus a an exotic waft of Indian spices. The rich, densely packed, full-bodied palate is at once thrillingly hedonic and perfectly poised, featuring a rock-solid frame of firm, exquisitely ripe tannins and tons of freshness, finishing epically long and with stunning opulence. Bravo!" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
