1991 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet - 94 pts!

Shafer Vineyards is a family-owned wine producer in the Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley. It is particularly known for its Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon, regarded as one of the very finest wines in California. With the first wines appearing in 1978, Shafer Vineyards is one of the founding estates of – and a benchmark in quality for – the Stags Leap District AVA. The scores for Hillside Select have been incredibly consistent in the 97 to 100 point range. 

Shafer has around 57 hectares (140 acres) of vines in the Stags Leap District, spread out across several vineyards. The Hillside Estate vineyard has shallow, free-draining soils tha produce small, intensly flavored berries. The best blocks are used to make the Hillside Select, a plummy, cherry-laden wine with ripe tannins that will age well for a decade or more.

Rating RP94 - This knock-out Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a youthful purple color, a sweet, blackcurrant, vanilla, and earthy-scented nose, great ripeness and sweetness of fruit, high flavor extraction, well-integrated acidity and tannin, and a layered, multi-dimensional, complete feel in the mouth with no hard edges or toughness. There is splendid balance and concentration. The 3.63 PH gives the wine a juicy, succulent, up-front feel, and a chewy, expansive, layered texture. This wine requires 4-5 years of cellaring, with the potential of 30+ years of aging. A terrific 1991!
