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.

Wow, this is just a great Cabernet. Can't remember if I had the 2006 or 2007. Drank it a little early but it was a special occasion.

Rich dark berry aroma (and I get a bit of ham in there as well, for some strange reason - I guess it's time for dinner!). Chocolatey, creamy mouth feel. Not too sweet, with nice tannins in the back.

Full and rich in the nose, smooth and full of raspberries and cherries. Palate is quite big and bordering on sweet, with licorice, cherry cola, round smooth tannins, leather and a cocoa finish.

Rich on the mouth, with notes of dark, ripe red fruit and dark chocolate.

Thick nose of red and black fruits. Very concentrated palate with rich mouthfeel. Thick is the descriptor for this wine all around, but it's not overly dense or overpowering. Nice floral berry tones with nice integrated tannin. Long lasting and powerful. The only flaw for me, is the heavy tannin on the finish. That should dissipate with time. - Tasted at Khoury's 6/2/10

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.

Robert Parker says of Shafer Vineyards "One of Napa’s most prominent and respected wineries, Shafer is a poster boy for remarkable and consistent quality across the board. All of this is the work of the brilliant father and son team of John and Doug Shafer as well as their long-term winemaker and vineyard manager, Elias Fernandez. With over 200-plus acres of estate holdings, and 55 surrounding their winery in Stags Leap, this is a winery that never seems to disappoint." Robert Parker scored this 2011 90-92 saying "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.

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. Antonio Galloni.

Lots of industry talk about the 2010 vintage for Napa, and Shafer is a shining example of how great this vintage will be. Layered and structured, with intense concentrated aromatics and powerful tannins, you can enjoy this now but will reward the patient.
