Shafer Vineyards One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$79.98

Limited new Cabernet Sauvignon release from Shafer!94 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon One Pint Five is a big-time winner, a blend of almost all Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine has an opaque bluish/purple color, almost indigo, and is full-bodied with dense chocolaty crème de cassis notes, licorice and a touch of minerality. The wine has well-integrated wood, is full and seems balanced and rich enough to age for two decades or more.  In particular, this year I was impressed with the Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five, which for my money is one of the best wines in Napa Valley in its price range..." ....Year in year out, this is one of the superstar wineries, not only in Napa Valley and all of California, but in the entire world. It’s the product of visionary John Shafer, who started in 1978 after a successful corporate career. He had the foresight and visionary genius to believe in the microclimates and soils of Stags Leap of the southern Napa Valley. When his son Doug came on board with their brilliant winemaker and Mr. Everything, Elias Fernandez, things soared in quality and diversity. Today, this is a winery that does everything about as perfect as can be. They have kept their feet, heads and egos grounded, and continue to kick proverbial ass with every vintage. They made some of the very finest, possibly the Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage in 2011, and in 2012 and 2013, they have crafted one profound wine after another.

Dark purple w/ fuschia rim like a malbec. Raspberry tootsie pop, prunes, jam, smoked chocolate, brand new leather furniture. Young and wound up, but rich and full of surprises to come. I've concluded it's a shame to drink a Shafer current vintage.

Opaque purple. Beautiful nose. Cassis, blueberries, blackberries, graphite, Rosemary, loads of flowers. Big, but still smooth and elegant. No hint of the 15.5% abv. I'll take this over HSS most of the time. Lovely 'big' Napa cab.

Rich and concentrated with lavish oak treatment. Well made for fans of the style, but for me; a boring echo of the California past.

And yet again Shafer produces a great bottle of the One Point Five. Drinks like a Australian Shiraz. Big, bold and chewy. Layered with oak, cedar and mocha flavors. Well done!
