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 climateand soils of our Stags Leap District vineyard sites and Shafer's commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality winemaking.
The glass comes alive with aromas of crushed red and black summer berries, rose petal and herbs. In the mouth the generous, lush black and red fruits integrate enticingly with sage, tobacco leaf, smoke and black spice all wrapped within a structure of ripe Stags Leap District tannins. The finish is long and pleasurable.
Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
"Dark plum, mocha, red cherry, spice and tobacco are some of the many notes that blossom in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five. The 2012 is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon built on voluptuous fruit, power and pure resonance." 93 Points Antonio Galloni December 2014
