Hundred Acre Ark Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard is intense. Dark red fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and exotic spices are some of the many notes that flow from this fabulous, textured Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 is a huge wine with a bright, bright future.
All Hundred Acre wines are made by sorting the fruit berry by berry, fermenting in small French oak fermenters, and long aging in the finest barriques. The secret to Hundred Acre is no compromise and no detail overlooked, ever.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2029.
Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Ruby-red, a bit less saturated than the 2007. Crystallized black cherry, cassis, licorice and violet on the nose. Leaner on entry than the 2007, then broadens impressively in the middle, offering a dense, silky texture with a lovely light touch. The dark fruit, espresso and menthol flavors are slightly liqueur-like but boast excellent definition and lift. Finishes with firm tannins that will require bottle aging.
2008 Hillside Select offers perfumy aromatic elegance and rich, focused flavors of blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, cola, cassis, juicy red cherry, black tea, with spice and warm toast. Ripe, silken tannins result in a pleasing, lengthy finish, smooth texture, and a refined structure which offers the potential for very long-term aging.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Best from 2014 through 2028.
