Shafer Hillside Select Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select performed even better this year than it did in 2007. It possesses an inky/ruby/purple color, a juicy perfume of black currants, black cherries, graphite, charcoal, and toasty oak, superb opulence, a fleshy mid-palate, a multilayered mouthfeel, and a dazzling finish. This flamboyant, sexy Hillside Select can be enjoyed now and over the next 20 years. Robert Parker

Lush and ripe yes but very precise acidity too. There's Stags leap terroir here. Just starting to reach its maturity
