Shafer Hillside Select 1992
Founded in 1972 in the famed Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley, Shafer Vineyards has for several decades been at the forefront of exceptional Californian wine production. Hillside Select is produced from a collection of 14 rugged vineyard blocks planted on an amphitheatre-shaped piece of land that surrounds the winery. It is their flagship wine and is consistently one of the finest 100% Cabernet Sauvignons in the region. The 1992 is a wonderful release and continues to suggest that Shafer entered a new realm of quality in the early 1990s. It is deep, rich, hedonistic and supremely well balanced.
