Shafer Vineyards One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$89.99

Limited new Cabernet Sauvignon release from Shafer!94 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. This is always a beautifully elegant wine from Shafer, and the 2013 is no exception. Blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with crushed rock and spring flowers are present in this medium-bodied, stylish and elegant wine. Tannins are soft, the wine pure and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years..." ....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."

2013 Shafer one point five cabernet sauvignon from the Stags Leap district of coarse! Well, perfection dad and son! John and Doug, you guys have mastered it. The cork was in perfect condition. After a 45 min eternity of time for decanting, the color is as dark as the night sky on a stormy night in the hills of Tennessee. The legs are slow and thick. The bouquet is peppered cranberry juice with a twist of rip figs growing on the tree. The initial palate is reminiscent of buttered toast and blackberry jam. There is a hint of spice and black pepper. On the finish which is very long, I detect black coffee and dark chocolate - not the Dove version, but the bitter version. There is an fired oaky wood flavor with a blast of a maduro cigar! The finish is very dry and if I don't get a sip of water soon My tongue my shrivel up. But I need another sip first! Fantastic wine! Here is a toast to the Shafer family and to my wonderful and beautiful Dayanara on our new home! Cheers!

Soft and smooth. Not quite Hillside Select but I really like this. Soaring bouquet and lingering finish. Perfect.

Saw @Ron R was enjoying a Shafer, so I decided to indulge tonight as well! This '13 One Point Five was actually pretty complex tonight. The aroma was powerful and inviting, and it stayed that way from first pop and pour until the last glass was enjoyed out of the decanter two hours later. The color was dark Ruby red and the legs were model-esque...went on for days. Got a medley of red fruits, black peppercorn, and graphite on the tongue. This needs time away, no question. Tannins were gripping. Drink 2021 and after.

A bouquet of fresh berries with a hint of rose pedals wrapped in a tobacco leaf - a bit our sour cherries in the palate.

The 2013 needs a decant to really start strutting its stuff
