2002 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Magnum - 100 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 100 RP - One of the world's most extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignons is the 1800-2400-case offering of Shafer's Hillside Select. It was a treat to re-taste the utterly perfect 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. A dark purple color is accompanied by a gorgeously powerful nose of pure creme de cassis pain grille flowers licorice and spice box. Full-bodied with multiple dimensions superb purity layers of fruit and a blockbuster finish it is an amazing offering. This wine should drink well young yet evolve for 2-3 decades. RP
