Aromas of warm black fruit, cedar, chocolate, and dried herbs, followed by rich, juicy flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate, and tobacco, with a nice long finish. The tannins are ripe and supple.

Good bright, deep red. Black raspberry and dark chocolate on the nose. Sweet, dense and creamy on the palate, with plush flavors of kirsch, licorice and bitter chocolate. The broad finish features substantial tannins and a touch of warmth. This big boy is almost too much of a good thing; it currently shows less refinement than some recent vintages.

This proprietary bottling from Shafer is always a huge wine. The 2010, which contains a splash of Petite Verdot, is gigantically packed with blackberry jam, black currant, dark chocolate and sweet oak, courtesy of 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels. The wine is a bit of a bully now, but it has the balance to age. Give it until 2018.

Intense and concentrated, this red is typically rustic, tilting toward dark berry and cedar, with gripping, gutsy tannins that should appeal to those who like to chew on their wines. Best from 2014 through 2022.

Mocha, tar, spices and tobacco all flow from the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five. A rich, intense wine, the 2010 impresses for its depth and sheer power. This is far from an easygoing Cabernet. I imagine the 2010 might still be going strong at age 20. The cold, late season yielded an utterly magnificent Cabernet that will challenge the top labels of many other properties. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.

This 2004 vintage is inky and very opaque garnet in the glass and has a bright, sumptuous nose of cherries and cola. With a smooth and satiny mouth feel and great balance and weight, this Cabernet has a slight sweetness to it enhancing the flavors of cherry and tobacco on a supple bed of tannins that lead into a nice finish with a hint of spice and herbs.

An excellent way to sample this new release! Lots of industry talk about the 2010 vintage for Napa, and Shafer Cabernet One Point Five is a shining example of how great this vintage will be. Layered and structured, with intense concentrated aromatics and powerful tannins.
