2008 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select - USA, California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District (11/21/2017)
Tuesday! Tuesday!! TUESDAY!!! MONSTER WINE!!!

Wow was this massive. It was also completely balanced, and kept gaining depth, richness and complexity as long as we managed to hold onto it. Sappy black fruit, rich spice tones, cedar, vanilla and more made for a powerful attack and sustain. It was certainly not my normal style of wine, but I was completely convinced and impressed. Amazing stuff that has a long future ahead of it.
