Shafer Napa Valley Cabernet One Point Five Stags Leap District 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Shafer family purchased their Napa Valley hillside estate in 1972, a property that had been the site of wine grape cultivation since the 1880s. John Shafer planted Cabernet Sauvignon on the property in the early and mid-1970s and from those vines made his first wine in 1978. Of the 2004 One Point Five, Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez says, “These are aromas and flavors that speak of home to me – pure Stags Leap District. The first thing I get in the glass are aromas of black, chewy fruit, cedar, chocolate, and dried herbs, followed by rich, juicy flavors of blackberry, smoke, dark chocolate, herbs, and tobacco, with a nice long finish. The tannins are ripe and supple, bringing back memories of the 1992 vintage.”

This is a wonderful wine! I have really come to admire the wines from Shafer. This Cab is very versatile in that you can drink it now and really enjoy it or you can lay it down for a few years and see what some bottle age will do. Enjoy! Cheers!

94 Points - Wine & Spirits"In the 2004 vintage, the Shafers replaced their Napa Valley Cabernet with One Point Five...The texture, that signal aspect of SLD fruit, is layered and as rich as French roast coffee, with an underlying tension that keeps the vine focused on high-toned red fruit, dark earth and violet scents. It's powerful and guarded when first poured, growing sleek and classical with a day of air. This should drink increasingly well over the next ten years." (07/09) 91+ Points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar"Bright, medium ruby-red. Expressive, rather wild nose melds cassis, black cherry, tobacco, iron, mocha, leather and brown spices. A bit less plump than the 2005 version, but suave and vinous, with good cut and life to the varietally typical flavors of currant, leather, mocha and tobacco leaf. This slightly restrained, soil-driven wine still needs time to unwind and will merit a higher score if time brings more pliancy. Finishes with firm, building tannins and sneaky length." (May/June '0990 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Sourced primarily from two Stags Leap Districts - the famed Hillside estate and the Borderline vineyard - this generation-and-a-half idea is a great selection for Shafer lovers who might not be able to indulge in the Hillside Select (or can't get their hands on a bottle). Sweet blackberry, plum and current fruit aromas and flavors are complemented by nuances of savory herbs, cocoa and cigar box (complete with cigars!."

Good medium ruby. Ripe, expressive aromas of black raspberry, currant, dark chocolate, sassafras, cedar, tobacco and spices. Sweet, dense and supple; at once full and nicely focused, with dark flavors of black raspberry, mulberry and spicy oak. Finis... Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 750ml

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a combination of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. It reveals all the elegance and classicism one expects from the Stags Leap District along with beautifully sweet cherry and black currant fruit, flower, spice box, and mineral-like notes. Medium-bodied and pure with terrific intensity and a degree of opulence characteristic of the vintage, it can be consumed over the next 10-12 years.
