Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 2018,750ml, 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. 2018 vintage – 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec. Vineyard location: Predominately from two Stags Leap District sites – Shafer’s hillside estate vineyard and “Borderline” vineyard located about two miles south of the winery. Aged 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. “2018 One Point Five is aromatically bright and overflowing with elegant, energetic flavors of red summer berries, black cherry, rose petal, and red and black plum, along with mocha, cinnamon, and spices. The seamless, silky tannins create a lush mouthfeel now and hold the promise for more riches to come with careful cellaring.” = Elias Fernandez, Shafer Winemaker.
