2016 Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon Stag’s Leap
Vibrant purple and dark fruit light up the glass with an inky hue along the rim. The nose is full of blueberry preserves, lavender, new leather and pipe tobacco. The mouthfeel is extraordinarily deep and with rounded edges and a long drawn out mid-palate. Full of crushed rocks, crème de cassis, a harmonious array of blue and purple fruit. This is a glass that will take you to the happiest of memories and back. Grab yours before these get gobbled up.
