Shafer Vineyards One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, USA 2014

One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon comes from one of the best locations in the Napa Valley, Stags Leap District, excluding the Hillside which goes to Shafer Vineyards Hill Side Select. 

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 winemaking. 

"From the moment you pull the cork on this vintage rich, tantalizing aromas fill the air with blackberry, black licorice, spice, rose petal, and cinnamon, leading to a lush, full-bodied wine offering juicy flavors of black and red plum, summer berries, pie crust, baked rhubarb, cinnamon, and warm briar jam in a seamless package of ripe, welcoming tannins and a long, vibrant finish.” Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez

REVIEWS AND AWARDS

95 points, James Suckling
There's so much peppermint and spice on the nose as well as walnuts, cedar and eucalyptus, and even crab apples. Lime zest, lots of ash and burnt orange, too. The freshness here really takes your breath away and there's pinpoint accuracy of blue and black fruit. Full body, vibrant acidity, very well integrated tannins and a mineral-driven finish
91 Points, Robert Parker
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five shows beautiful purity, not the weight, profound depth and structure of the 2013, but it is still medium to full-bodied, elegant, graceful and a classic example of the Stags Leap appellation. Drink it over the next 15+ years.
