Parker über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Parker: Interestingly, the first thing that came to my mind in smelling the 1995 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select was a relatively young vintage of Château Latour. Another fabulous effort, with notes of blackcurrants, graphite, a touch of vanilla, sweet tannin and a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel, this vintage offers stunning aromatics of black fruits, earth, charcoal and lead pencil shavings. In addition, there is an intense, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a youthful vibrancy and vigor that are sensational. This is an amazingly young wine that’s coming up on 20 years of age and another great example of just how these best terroirs of Napa can produce incredibly long-lived Cabernet Sauvignons. It should last at least another two decades as well. 98/100

Shafer Vineyards

Shafer Vinyards im Stags Leap District ist zweifellos eine der amerikanischen Vorzeige-Stories schlechthin. John R. Shafer hing in den frühen 70er Jahren mit 50 seinen alten Bürojob als Marketing-Experte an den Nagel und wollte Wein machen.
