2010 Shafer Hillside Select
--delicious despite its extremely young age and 15.5% alcohol content!
--will not be opening another one for many many years to come (which for me, means about 2 years!)
Wow, you really didn't wait long at all on that one!
I wouldn't want to extrapolate too much from so few data points, but we've had 2010 Caymus SS three times, 2010 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain, 2010 Altamura Napa, and 2010 Lewis Hillstone, and all of these are really enjoyable. I've no doubt they'll improve, but they're fun to drink young if you don't mind purple tongue and teeth.
The Caymus SS, especially, reminded me right away of a big delicious Australian shiraz, and I mean that in the good way. I bought a bunch of these.
