Shafer One Point Five is a bold, expansive Stags Leap District wine with soft tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. The wine’s name references the partnership between father and winery founder the late John Shafer and his son Doug, who took on the role of winemaker in 1983. Their working relationship lasted for over 30 years. “One Point Five” was coined to mean “a generation and a half” to reflect the overlap in generations, as opposed the the traditional second-generation winery story.
This wine combines fruit from two Stags Leap District sites: Shafer’s hillside estate vineyard and the “Borderline” vineyard, located just south of the winery. It was aged for approximately 20 months in new French oak barrels.
One Point Five fills your glass with a generous, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon offering aromas and flavours of bright black cherry, red currant, cranberry, lavender, allspice, and crushed herbs. All this lush, vivid fruit is seamlessly brought together with ripe, cashmere-like tannins that promise years of beauty ahead with careful cellaring.
“This sophisticated and concentrated wine wraps lovely dark plums, blueberries and cocoa flavors in velvety tannins that are well integrated and soothing, while still setting the wine up for a potentially long life. Subtle baking spices, espresso and cedar accents enhance the impressive fruit flavors.”
