Dr. Owen Bargreen

The 2005 Shafer ‘Hillside Select’ Cabernet Sauvignon is starting to hit its upper register at now the fourteen year mark. The tertiary notes entice aromatically with its wild mushroom and damp earth tones that combine with the dense core of dark fruits and cocoa powder on this exotic bouquet. Silky smooth throughout, the 2005 ‘Hillside Select’ glides effortlessly across the mid-palate, unveiling its gorgeous mouthfeel and texture. Blackberry cobbler and mocha flavors mingle with the lovely earthy and tertiary tones on the palate. Fantastic now, the 2005 ‘Hillside Select’ is starting to peak and should drink well for at least another ten years. Drink 2019-2032- 95
