2005 Shafer Hillside Select

Pimp Juice

Big, slutty, Napa Cabernets are often described as panty droppers, so sinfully declicious that they inspire the taster to remove their undergarments. If that is true, then the 2005 Shafer Hillside Select – Stags Leap District is a panty tosser.

You can confidently assume that any wine adorned with the powerful, minimalist black Shafer label is going to wow your tastebuds, but Hillside Select is a cut above. Hillside Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon selected from the best available fruit of the year’s harvest. It is a huge, bold, extracted paragon of New World glory. If you’re in the mood for subtlety or foreign flicks, you should look elsewhere. Hillside Select is raw bottled sexuality that laciviously leaps from your glass, carresses your olfactory glands, and pole dances all the way down your throat.

The powerful vanilla bean flavor leaps from the nose, intermingled with dense dark fruit flavors, like a concentrated blackberry jam. The mid-palate is a flurry of blackberry, currant, and black cherry, that is wrapped together by a beautiful, long, sensual caramel finish that lasts for an uncomfortably wonderful amount of time.

When you drop 200 dollars on a bottle of wine, you’re not just looking for quality. You’re searching for something special; a wine capable of transforming an evening into an experience. If you want that experience to be passionate and unforgettable, look no further than 2005 Shafer Hillside Select – Stags Leap District. The wine is pure indulgence from the first sip to the very last drop.
