Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 2001, 750mL (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select

750mL

Vintage: 2001
Region: US
Appellation: Stags Leap, Napa

WA100
Rated 100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `I should not be surprised that the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select merited a perfect rating since I rated it 99 eight years ago. I also gave the 2002 Hillside Select a perfect rating. Kudos to Doug and John Shafer for creating two perfect wines in back to back vintages. The 2001 is a big wine (14.9% natural alcohol), but the alcohol is buried beneath an avalanche of creme de cassis, wood smoke, toast, licorice and spring flower characteristics. Super full-bodied with fabulous fruit purity, a broad, expansive mouthfeel, lots of glycerin and a huge upside, this 2001 is still an infant at age ten, but it is approachable as well as compelling to smell and taste. It has at least another three decades of aging potential ahead of it and is one of the great young, legendary classics from Napa Valley. It was a privilege to taste. There are approximately 2,000 cases of this cuvee which comes from Shafer`s hillside vineyards in the Stags Leap area and is aged 32 months in 100% new French oak.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
