 Tasted by Coopereca on 12/14/2013: Drank, needed decanting but openned up with about an hour out of the bottle (669 views)
 Tasted by 1800kidney on 1/1/2010 & rated 92 points: Lovely old time California cabernet..very nice balance and fruit presence up front, long finish. Delighted its lasted this long, would not carry any longer (2076 views)
 Tasted by Terkel on 12/15/2007 & rated 95 points: Year end blindtasting: Dark red color. Youthfull nose with intense aromas of black currant and other black berries, also packing more subtle notes of sour curdled milk and vanila. Very concentrated fruit on the palate packing intense flavours and leaving a very youthfull impression in the mouth. Sweet oak and coconut shows up on the midpalate and finish, and the tannins still makes a powerfull presence. Super long taste and amazing complexity, at the same time all the elements are beautifully intertwined in the smooth mouthfeel that is an absolute pleasure to drink. I'm utterly stunned by how youthfully this wine is at this age. (2865 views)

Shafer

Producer website
John Shafer and his family founded Shafer Vineyards, located in the Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley, in 1979. From the Shafers' first wine, a 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon,
their wines have won much acclaim. Today, the Shafers farm 200 acres of vineyard in the Stags Leap District, Carneros and Oak Knoll regions. Their flagship wine, Hillside Select,
is produced from selected blocks of the family's hillside vineyards and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. They also produce Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay, Merlot, One Point Five
(Cabernet Sauvignon) and Relentless (a Syrah/Petite Sirah blend), which was named #1 wine of the year by Wine Spectator's "Top 100" of 2012.

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
