The first wine of a new era, the 1989 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is the finest produced since the debut vintage in 1978. It still reveals a deep ruby/plum/garnet color to the rim as well as notes of graphite, cedarwood, blackcurrants and forest floor. Medium-bodied with excellent richness, soft tannins and an authoritative finish, it was a revelation in a vintage I generally do not find appealing. (RP)
Still firm and intense, with complex earthy mineral, currant, anise, cedar, tar and slightly nutty flavors, it's a big, muscular wine with ample tannins. (JL)
