2005 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

Estate: Shafer Vineyards

Region: Stags Leap District, Napa Valley, California, United States of America

Tasting Note:January 20, 2017

Deep ruby red. A little savory to start on the nose with dark yet muted black berries. Solid undertone of dark baking spices, especially cinnamon and vanilla. A touch floral too. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Very dark and extracted palate, voluptuous. Dark and black cherries with blueberry undertones with cherry cola. Long and lingering finish. Delicious wine with years to come.
