Shafer Hillside Select 2002 1.5L [slightly nicked label]
2002 Shafer - Wine Advocate # 168, Dec 2006: One of the world's most extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignons is the 1,800-2,400-case offering of Shafers 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.
