This is a Cabernet with the Stags Leap District imprint all the way to its rich core. Lush, pronounced aromas lead to layers of flavor - black cherry, red cherry, savory herbs, cassis, black pepper, smoke, and briar fruit. The wine's lively, energetic juiciness comes wrapped in ripe, chewy tannins offering the ideal structure for extensive aging.

Wine EnthusiastThe velvety approachability of this soft, supple wine belies a strength and sophistication always at the heart of this producer's wines, an intensity of flavor and power that commands attention. Black currant, black cherry, sage and smoky oak ride atop an underground of black pepper, combining ultimately into a tantalizingly juicy package. Drink now through 2023.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. This is always a beautifully elegant wine from Shafer, and the 2013 is no exception. Blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with crushed rock and spring flowers are present in this medium-bodied, stylish and elegant wine. Tannins are soft, the wine pure and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years.

Wine SpectatorTight and focused, with a mix of currant, dill, cedar, graphite and loamy earth flavors, shaded with spicy oak nuances and supported by firm, dusty tannins. Best from 2019 through 2030. 9,000 cases made.
