Nestled in Napa’s Stag’s Leap zone, the Shafer homestead has been vineyard since the 1880s, something founder Joe Shafer couldn’t resist! Since 1972 Shafer and team have cultivated these treasured hillsides, and produced gold medal wines to match. Named for the rugged hillsides that frame the Stag’s Leap AVA, 2013 Hillside Select is subdued yet powerful, and ready to burst with black cherry fruit and heavy tannins. With time, it will reward drinkers who manage to cellar this brooding beast of a Cabernet wine with polished tannins and layers of luxurious flavor. Only 18 bottles available!

About the wine

What makes the Shafer flagship Cabernet Sauvignon so special is its magical combination of aging potential and elegant fruit. Robert Parker (98pts) called the 2013 “The greatest vintage I have ever tasted for Bordeaux varieties in Northern California” and his words cut straight to the heart of this stunning Stag’s Leap Cabernet. Dominated by sun-soaked days, this vintage was a winemaker’s dream according to Shafer’s lead winemaker Elias Fernandez. Subdued, yet powerful, 2013 Hillside Select is one to treasure!

We know cellaring anything (especially something THIS good) takes a lot of restraint, but do your future self a favor and lock this one up for a few years! A true feast for the senses--think cocoa dusted cherries, blackberry, and coffee--wrapped in a cloak of Stag’s Leap’s fierce tannins, ‘13 is poised to be go from beast to beauty. But don’t wait on buying, this new release is sure to sell out!

"Amazing flavor, very silky, good balance on acidity." - Miguel F.

"Tight and closed for now but huge potential. Decant for 2 to 4 hours of you have to open one but hold for 10yrs at least otherwise." - John P.

99 pts, James Suckling

“Wonderful floral aromas with perfumed roses plus hints of blackcurrants and spearmint. Full-bodied and so powerful and muscular but always showing the brightness and beauty of fruit. Winemakers say this reminds them of the 1978, their first year. It certainly has the structure — "those tannins" as they put it. Finish is so impressive with tar, iron and spices.”

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
