Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 2017,750ml, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley, California

One Point Five takes its name from the term ‘a generation and a half,’ coined by John and Doug Shafer to describe their long father-and-son partnership. Since 1983 this family team has worked together to manage their Stags Leap District winery. 2017 vintage – 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, predominately from two Stags Leap District sites – Shafer’s hillside estate vineyard and ‘Borderline’ vineyard located about two miles south of the winery. Cooperage: 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. 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. “In your glass the wine introduces itself with enticing aromas of red and black fruit, baking spice, dark violets, lavender, wet stone, and cinnamon. The promise of all that delicious complexity is fulfilled with a racy Cabernet Sauvignon full of energy * juicy flavors of red plum, cherry, cassis, black tea, and cola – all beautifully packaged together with ripe, bright tannins made for right-now enjoyment as well as long term aging in your cellar.” – Shafer Winemaker Elias Fernandez
