What others are saying
2009 Hillside Select
“… clearly one of the greatest Shafer Hillside Selects ever. It shows incredibly concentrated blackberry, dark chocolate and ripe cassis flavors, wrapped into impeccably rich tannins. Made from 100% Cabernet, it’s a superb example of Hillside.”
— Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast

2010 Relentless
“Firm, rich and dense, this combines power with finesse, offering a deep mix of chewy dark berry, dark chocolate, black licorice, road tar, tobacco and loamy earth flavors, tightly wound and leading to a long finish.”
— James Laube, Wine Spectator

2011 One Point Five
“… inky/purple color along with sweet cassis and mulberry fruit intermixed with notions of high quality toast and spring flowers … an outstanding success for the vintage.”
— Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

2011 Merlot
“Bright red berries, flowers, mint, spices and savory herbs jump from the glass … aromas and flavors are bright, perfumed and beautifully nuanced …”
— Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2012 Red Shoulder Ranch
“Gorgeous, honeyed … striking purity and texture as well as a delicious combination of tropical fruit, citrus and minerality. This beauty should drink well for 3 - 4 years.”
— Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
