A total hedonistic turn-on, the 2012 has developed beautifully since I tasted it last year. The 2012 is not especially subtle. Instead it bursts from the glass with intense raciness and voluptuousness. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, spice and new leather flesh out on the opulent finish... (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct 2015)

Shafer hillside select - 2012 - I am using this beautiful beast of a Napa cab to release all stress, toxins and sadness and bring in positive thoughts, emotions and inspirations- Rest In Peace mom - your with your son and my brother now - your strong independence yet caring ways and values will live on through me and your grandsons - this is a RP 100 pointer and a prefect tribute to my mom - my wife and I have appreciated the kind comments of hope and prayers from the gang on Delectable - decanted 2 hours and man did this baby sing loud and in prefect pitch - this is all I love about Napa - just says I am here and don't dare challenge me - if I could afford and not be an offspring of my mother who liked to explore new as well enjoy the old dependable wines I would just drink this wine every time - I know it is young and this baby will only get better as it rests but I wanted to try and just a lush lovely lively beautiful expression of joy in a glass -

Young yet very forward. Beautiful red and black fruit. Cedar and leather back notes.
