Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): 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. (Dec 2012)

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.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot) exhibits aromas of blueberries, black currants, incense and delicate floral notes. Following the stunning perfume, this full-bodied, elegant, super-rich wine reveals great definition and purity of black currants and black raspberries gentle wrapped in subtle spicy oak. This classic Cabernet is the quintessential model for both Stags Leap and Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are sweet enough that it can be drunk now, but it should evolve easily for two decades.

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.

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.
