Heiner Lobenberg über:
Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 2010


Lobenberg: Hochkonzentrierte Frucht, dunkle Beeren, Schokolade und Johannisbeeraromen. Dicht und seidig und lang. Einer der größten Weine der Welt und ein Monument des kalifornischen Weinbaus, zusammen mit dem Monte Bello von Ridge der langfristig vielleicht beste Rotwein der USA. 98-100/100


Parker über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Parker: The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select offers a mindblowing display of blue, red and black fruits along with licorice and floral notes. The prodigious aromatics are followed by a precise, rich, pure blast of inky black currant, blueberry and mulberry flavors. The oak is virtually undetectable, and the wine, for all its power, richness and depth, is incredibly light on its feet and ethereal. It should drink well for 3 to 4 decades. Those who might argue that wines over 14% alcohol are hot, loathsome and heavy really need to objectively taste these wines rather than bloviate. 100/100


Galloni über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Galloni: Readers will have to be much more patient with the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select, as there is much less early appeal here. Dark cherries, plums, graphite, mint and cloves emerge over time, but only with great reluctance. The 2010 finishes with bracing, cool minerality, showing impressive depth, power and energy. The pulsating, vibrant 2010 is pretty much the opposite of the 2009. Following both over the next 10-20 years is going to be great fun. 98/100


WS über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- WS: Pure, rich and intense, massive and well-built, with wall-to-wall ripe berry, currant, cedar and spice notes, framed by gutsy, chewy tannins and aided by a long, intense, layered finish. 95/100


Suckling über: Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

-- Suckling: Fabulous aromas of currants, mint, spice and wet earth. Violets. Full-bodied, super-lively red with tension and spice. Red soil and terracotta. Slate. Intense, chewy finish. Juicy and fruity. September 2014 release. 98/100

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. […]
