Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
This powerful, savory bottling named for the two generations behind the family winery opens with toasted barrel and meat aromas before expanding on the nose and palate with additional black pepper and soy components. The fruit is distinctly spicy-a mix of blackberry, clove and cinnamon.
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five brings together striking aromatic nuance along with the textural richness that is such a signature of this wine. Lavender, rose petal, dark red and bluish fruits and mint are laced together in a refreshing, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers the goods.
Austere and aromatic, with grippy tannins and a trim band of dark berry, cedar, black licorice and loamy earth flavors. This slowly works into a more harmonious groove on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2028. 9,000 cases made.
