Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon 'hillside Select' 2007

Wine advocate - 98: plus the 2007 cabernet sauvignon hillside select has the potential to be a perfect wine in 5 to 6 years. Although it has shut down since i tasted it last year, it is unquestionably shafer’s finest hillside select since the 2001 and 2002. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 35 plus years. This selection is made from the eisele clone of cabernet sauvignon planted in a choice 50-acre parcel. It takes concentration, graciousness and complexity to its highest level in napa valley. An inky/blue/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of blueberries, blackberries, charcoal and subtle toast. The wine possesses fabulous concentration, a seamless/flawless personality, a textbook integration of alcohol, wood, tannin and acidity, an almost endless finish and a voluptuous texture. Exhibiting more tannin and structure than it did last year, this is a colossal wine that will still be going strong in 2050.
