SHAFER CABERNET ONE POINT FIVE 2015


“This is a Cabernet with the Stags Leap District imprint all the way to its rich core. Lush, pronounced aromas lead to layers of flavor – black cherry, red cherry, savory herbs, cassis, black pepper, smoke, and briar fruit. The wine’s lively, energetic juiciness comes wrapped in ripe, chewy tannins offering the ideal structure for extensive aging.” 

"One Point Five is an elegant, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with soft tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. This wine reflects the climate and soils of our Stags Leap District vineyard sites and Shafer’s commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality inemaking." - Winery

Blueberries, minerals, dried herbs and spices on the nose follow through to a full to medium body with a fantastic linear palate that gives the wine super energy and harmony. Goes on for minutes. Lots of black licorice and stones at the end. 95% cabernet sauvignon with hints of merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Better in 2019.

The velvety approachability of this soft, supple wine belies a strength and sophistication always at the heart of this producer's wines, an intensity of flavor and power that commands attention. Black currant, black cherry, sage and smoky oak ride atop an underground of black pepper, combining ultimately into a tantalizingly juicy package. Drink now through 2023. Cellar Selection.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. This is always a beautifully elegant wine from Shafer, and the 2013 is no exception. Blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with crushed rock and spring flowers are present in this medium-bodied, stylish and elegant wine. Tannins are soft, the wine pure and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years.

The finely ripened tannins of this wine show off the greatness of the 2013 vintage, their chocolate richness detailed in layers that give the wine a Stags Leap District signature. The fruit fills those layers with dark raspberry scents, floral notes and savory elements - what Gretchen Buck of SF's Absinthe described as the lifted scent of fresh bay leaves. The Shafers blend this wine from their home vineyard, on a series of volcanic, dome-shaped hills nestled under the Stags Leap escarpment, including fruit from their Borderline Vineyard, two miles south. At 15.3 percent alcohol, this is bold, but it's balanced, notably fine and approachable for its size.
