Shafer's Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 was rated a near perfect 99 points by Robert Parker, another great score for Shafer's flagship wine, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 32 months in new French oak.

Shafer Vineyards is one of California's finest wineries. It was established in 1972 by John Shafer, who changed from publisher to winemaker, moving to the Napa with his family. The Shafer family replanted existing vineyards in the Stag’s Leap District, before producing their first wine in 1978. 

"...combines the vintage's spectacularly ripe, luscious fruit with a rarely seen degree of elegance and finesse. The wine is extremely rich, as well as gorgeously poised and graceful. The saturated ruby/purple color is accompanied by Medoc-like, lead pencil aromas intermixed with cassis, cedar, minerals, and spice. I wrote the word "great" four different times in my most recent tasting note, which mirrored every other tasting note I have. It is full-bodied and seamless, with a silky texture, voluptuous richness, and fabulous purity. The finish lasts for over 40 seconds.” Robert Parker
