    Description

    Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
    Hillside Select
    owc
    Bottle (4)

    Wines from a Chicago collector. All wines were purchased on release and stored in a temperature and humidity controlled cellar.

    "2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select (just released) shows some graphite and pain grille notes intermixed with creme de cassis, licorice, camphor, and some spice box. Full-bodied, powerful, with fabulous fruit, silky tannins, and an intense mouthfeel, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 20-25 years." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #174, Dec. 2007)

    "The 2003 is a singular style of wine, but by no means wimpy or undernourished. The 2003 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select has a dense, purple color, notes of creosote, graphite, blackberry and cassis fruit, charcoal and scorched earth. It has a full-bodied mouthfeel and excellent purity, while some rather noticeable tannins kick in on the finish. This wine seems to be moving from adolescence to that early mature stage, where I would expect it to hold for at least another 10-15 or more years." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #216, Dec. 2014)


    Estimate: $600 - $800.
