2001 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Magnum - 99 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 99 RP - The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is a potentially perfect wine in the making. A skyscraper that builds in the mouth with multiple dimensions amazing layers of flavor great delicacy and tremendous purity this inky purple-colored Cabernet offers extraordinarily pure creme de cassis notes intermixed with crushed rocks flowers sweet oak an amazingly powerful yet impeccably balanced mid-palate and a sweet 70-second finish. This prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon is about as good as Cabernet can be. RP
