From a modest beginning of 1,000 cases in 1978, the winery has grown steadily until reaching its present size of 32,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Syrah. Today Shafer wines are available in major markets nationwide and in many foreign markets.
Lovely, lingering nose. Lean fruit, not sweet. Finishes with a comparable lingering, soft, bitter tannins.
Big Bordeaux nose. Blueberries and creme but hot on the palate. Complex, with a nice smooth blackberry/blueberry liquor and a touch of burnt leather.

Previously recommended, but no tasting note given. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Shafer Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 750ml
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (99% Cabernet and 1% Petit Verdot) is a meatier, more structured wine, but slightly deeper than the 2004, with broad black currant fruit flavors intermixed with some spice box, crushed rock, and spring flowers. It is characteristic of Stags Leap in its elegance and finesse. The wine has good acidity and freshness, but is long and seamless. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.Wine Tasting NotesAromas of black, chewy fruit, cedar, chocolate, and dried herbs, followed by a seamless balance of rich, juicy flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate, and tobacco, with a nice long finish. The tannins are ripe and supple.
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 10-15 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.
Rich, deep and complex, with a complex mix of fleshy currant, dried berry, anise, sage and mineral, framed by light cedary oak. Gains depth and complexity on the finish. Elegant and stylish. Best from 2009 through 2014. 9,500 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2005 Shafer Vineyards One Point Five 750ml

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.
