Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 100

Very deep, vibrant purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select strides confidently out of the glass with expressive notions of blueberry preserves, Black Forest cake, cassis and cedar chest with touches of pencil lead, licorice, violets and sandalwood plus a an exotic waft of Indian spices. The rich, densely packed, full-bodied palate is at once thrillingly hedonic and perfectly poised, featuring a rock-solid frame of firm, exquisitely ripe tannins and tons of freshness, finishing epically long and with stunning opulence. Bravo! [Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 02/08/2020]

Vinous 95-98

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is shaping up to be magnificent. All the elements are simply in the right place. Silky tannins, expressive aromatics and exquisitely layered fruit are some of the signatures. Deep and persistent, yet also wonderfully restrained, the 2016 is super impressive. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s gravitas and pure power. This is a tremendous showing from Shafer and winemaker Elias Fernandez. [Antonio Galloni, 01/03/2018]
