Shafer Winery is nearly 50 years old. Second-generation Doug Shafer and winemaker Elias Fernandez have crafted Shafer wines for more than 35 years. Elias said the 2015 vintage ” …gave us smaller berries packed with an immensity of pure, opulent aromas and flavors. “ Wine Adovcate was also a fan, awarding it 98+ points: “…the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select comes bounding out of the glass with gregarious scents of crème de cassis, warm black cherries, plum preserves and Indian spices with hints of lilacs, garrigue, stewed tea, and cigar box plus a waft of charcuterie. (It's) full-bodied, rich, boldly fruited, and wildly decadent…” Cheers to another classic from Shafer!
