International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

(25th anniversary bottling): Good full ruby. Captivating aromas of cassis, blackberry and violet show an almost liqueur-like ripeness. Then rich, sweet, highly concentrated and large-scaled, with compelling flavors of dark berries, brown spices and sexy oak complicated by powerful soil tones. This drenches the mouth with flavor, with the wine's tannins melting into its powerful fruit. Showing spectacularly today but this will evolve for decades. The hillside behind the house and winery makes up the core of this blend. (Incidentally, the very long 2006 showed a spectacular nose in March but is in a rather closed, tough stage right now and should be held for at least another five years.)

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select has the potential to be a perfect wine in 5 to 6 years. Although it has shut down since I tasted it last year, it is unquestionably Shafer's finest Hillside Select since the 2001 and 2002. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 35+ years. This selection is made from the Eisele clone of Cabernet Sauvignon planted in a choice 50-acre parcel. It takes concentration, graciousness and complexity to its highest level in Napa Valley. An inky/blue/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of blueberries, blackberries, charcoal and subtle toast. The wine possesses fabulous concentration, a seamless/flawless personality, a textbook integration of alcohol, wood, tannin and acidity, an almost endless finish and a voluptuous texture. Exhibiting more tannin and structure than it did last year, this is a colossal wine that will still be going strong in 2050.

Impressive for its richness, elegance and grace, this is spicy and supple, with full-bodied plum, currant and black licorice notes, gaining momentum and ending with a silky aftertaste of loamy earth.

Cedar & slightly corked nose. The intense fruit carried the corked flavors for now but not a bottle to be drinking in a few years. I wish we had a second bottle there to open as it appears to be a great vintage.

Drank over a three day period celebrating our first children born, a boy and a girl! Intoxicating aroma upon opening. Huge lush nose, blueberries, smoke, spice & a touch floral. The palate is much the same. Large scaled wine with just enough tannin and fruit to balance the alcohol. The second day is more of the same with a little less fruit. Third day is just beautiful lush dark fruits with less tannin showing. I preferred the wine on the third day. This is a huge wine that needs plenty of time.
