Red fruit, spice, cassis, very ripe, creamy aromas. Flavors are slightly tart, very smooth, lilting, morphing, well oaked, bright on the attack but mellowing out as it's held in the mouth. Wonderful smooth tannins, but oh so closed right now. Lay it right down.

Barnyard and chocolate prevalent in nose at opening. Dry, sharp palate, but interesting and elegant – stays hot and astringent through finish. After one hour, still hot and spicy on nose and palate. Hot and bitter finish continues through two hours. Fruit stays small during first two hours, and barnyard flavors remain strong. After three hours, fruit blossoms and the wine broadens into a more elegant experience, though it remains acerbic on the finish. At four hours, this strong Cab is absolutely at its peak of elegance and size, with the emergence of cherry and other bright red fruits filling an earlier vacuum.

Big bold and showy style of rough and ready cabernet. Dense black currant with some camphor and tar. Some slight vanilla notes. Big chewy but sophisticated tannins with a nice balance throughout. I like the turn these have made with the re-branding of One Point Five. 91/100

The Shafer One Point Five is a wonderfully complex cabernet. It has aromas of cedar, chocolate, and herbs. The flavor is complex; with blackberry, smoke, tobacco, and dark chocolate being the most pronounced. The tannins are ripe and supple, and the

Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with 1% Petite Verdot, this big, tannic wine may well age, but right now it's a bit disjointed. Shows candied flavors of cherries, plums, chocolate and herbs, with smoky caramel from new oak. Gets better in the glass as it breathes. Try after 2010.

In the 2004 vintage, the Shafers replaced their Napa Valley Cabernet with One Point Five. The wine is based on the familyandrsquo;s hillside estate vineyards and the 25-acre Borderline Vineyard, which the Shafers acquired in 1999, both in SLDandrsquo;s southeastern corner of the Napa Valley. This wine doesnandrsquo;t have the detail of their famed Hillside Select, but itandrsquo;s remarkably close in quality. The texture, that signal aspect of SLD fruit, is layered and as rich as French roast coffee, with an underlying tension that keeps the wine focused on high-toned red fruit, dark earth and violet scents. Itandrsquo;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.

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 form, building tannins and sneaky length.

There are approximately 9,000 cases of the Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap. The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 offers delicious red currant and black cherry fruit interwoven with notions of loamy soil and spring flowers. It is an elegant, stylish effort to enjoy over the next 10andndash;15 years.
