Lot #399. Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 2008

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96 WA.
"The estate’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is one of those rare wines that looks like it will be absolutely delicious pretty much at any point in its life. Super-refined and silky, the 2008 caresses the palate with layers of deeply expressive dark fruit. The 2008 is a wine of exceptional textural finesse and pedigree. According to Doug Shafer, cool weather in the spring resulted in small clusters with high skin to juice ratios, always a plus for high quality wines. Today the 2008 does not look like a huge Hillside Select, but is rather a wine built on polish and elegance." Wine Advocate #204, Dec 2012
Provenance: The Pigeonneau Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $300
