Shafer Cab One Point Five 2011
89-91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): Shafer's 2011 Merlot jumps from the glass with dark cherries, spices, sage, mint and licorice. There is good juiciness and depth in the Merlot. The 2011 is a bit darker in tonality than the 2010. This is a terrific effort for the year. The 2011 is 76% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023. (Dec 2012)
From a modest beginning of 1,000 cases in 1978, the winery has grown steadily until reaching its present size of 32,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Syrah. Today Shafer wines are available in major markets nationwide and in many foreign markets.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Shafer Cab One Point Five
The 2011 Merlot (76% Merlot 14% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot) exhibits a similar dense purple color along with slightly more subdued aromas of coffee beans black cherries black fruits and spice. It does not reveal the viscosity density and overall completeness of the 2010. Nevertheless this is a successful effort in a far more challenging vintage. Drink it over the next 6-9 years. - Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Aromas and flavors of fresh plums, sweet black cherries, currants, red licorice, a little pepper
Bright red berries flowers mint spices and savory herbs jump from the glass in the 2011 Merlot. The aromas and flavors are bright perfumed and beautifully nuanced in this vintage. Sweet floral notes reappear on the mid-weight finish. Ideally the 2011 is best enjoyed over the next few years. The 2011 is 75% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Antonio Galloni.
