Shafer 'Hillside Select' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Wine Advocate 100
" 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 ... read more

Vinous 98
"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."

International Wine Cellar 96
" Deep, bright ruby-blue. Cassis, blackberry, blueberry, mocha and minerals on the nose, along with a mounting component of sweet oak. Sappy and silky on entry, then utterly mouthfilling without being heavy. The thick yet suave black cherry and cassis flavors boast outstanding intensity and a surprisingly restrained sweetness, with the sexy oak perfectly integrated. Finishes with utterly seamless, noble tannins and great resounding length. A great vintage for this perennial star--and likely to evolve in bottle for at least 15 to 20 years thanks to its outstanding density and balance. "

Wine Spectator 95
"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. Drink now through 2027."
