Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Hmmm. I get why this gets its praise, I just don't know what to make of it. The decant seemed enough. It had everything in a compact little space. The proverbial 5lb Bologna in a 2 lb bag so to speak. I sensed the oak and the fruit and the acid and the tannins, but sensing seemed not to be enough. Interesting to have it included. I can understand the 10-year rule imposed here
