1995 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet - 99 Pts!

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is fabulous. I initially rated this wine 92-94 but out of bottle it is awesome! It reveals a saturated color similar to the 1994. While the aromatics are more restrained the wine boasts plenty of black currants lead pencil mineral and pain grille scents. Deep with spectacular purity ripeness and richness and far more expansiveness and depth than it possessed a year ago this wine offers a classic juxtaposition of power and elegance. It will take a few years to come around but wow what a wine! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025. Since the 1991 vintage one of the stars of the Cabernet Sauvignon sweepstakes has been Shafer's Hillside Select. Approximately 2000-2200 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon are produced. The wine is aged in 100% new oak for 30 months. Recent vintages have all been spectacular. In short attempting to decipher qualitative differences between them is akin to splitting hairs. I just hope that Cabernet lovers have the discretionary income and accessibility to cellar a few bottles. RP
