Shafer Cabernet One Point Five 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The glass comes alive with aromas of crushed red and black summer berries, rose petal and herbs. In the mouth the generous, lush black and red fruits integrate enticingly with sage, tobacco leaf, smoke and black spice all wrapped within a structure of ripe Stags Leap District tannins. The finish is long and pleasurable.

A revelation, it is hard to believe the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) came from a challenging vintage of cool weather and rainy periods. It boasts an inky/purple color along with sweet cassis and mulberry fruit intermixed with notions of high quality toast and spring flowers. Although it does not reveal the mid-palate density and impact or finish of the 2010, the 2011 is an outstanding success for the vintage. - Robert Parker 90-92 Points The glass comes alive with aromas of crushed red and black summer berries, rose petal and herbs.

Herbs graphite menthol pine and black plums meld together in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five. The 2011 is decidedly dark intensely mineral and savory throughout. Sage rosemary and anise are some of the many nuances that add depth over time. In 2011 the blend includes 5% Petit Verdot which contributes to the wine s dark balsamic-inflected personality.

Shafer’s estate-grown cabernet comes primarily from two sites: the family’s original vineyard tucked under the Stags Leap escarpment on a series of knolls, planted by John and Doug Shafer in the 1970s, and the Borderline Vineyard, at the southern end of the district, with 25 acres of cabernet planted in 2000 and ’01. As those vines have matured, they’ve provided enough fruit that Shafer could shift from a Napa Valley to an SLD designation for its cabernet. And with each successive vintage, One Point Five seems to sneak a little closer to Hillside Select. Graced by exceptional drainage, both sites performed well in 2011, creating a silky cabernet with succulent red fruit. There’s energy in the wine, from the floral buzz of the aroma to the racy tannins. Like the best of Shafer’s cabernets, this will age for 15 to 20 years.
