Outer quote mark Blueberries, minerals, dried herbs and spices on the nose follow through to a full to medium body with a fantastic linear palate that gives the wine super energy and harmony. Goes on for minutes. Lots of black licorice and stones at the end. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The velvety approachability of this soft, supple wine belies a strength and sophistication always at the heart of this producer’s wines, an intensity of flavor and power that commands attention. Black currant, black cherry, sage and smoky oak ride atopan underground of black pepper, combining ultimately into a tantalizingly juicy package.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five takes its name from the fact that John and Doug Shafer, as father and son, have worked together for a generation and a half – hence the name. This wine comes from their Stags Leap property and is a beauty. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a stunner made from 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest other varietals. It is aged in 100% new oak, but you would never tell that given its richness of blackcurrant fruit, classic flowers and unsmoked cigar tobacco. The wine needs 3-4 years, as most 2013s do, and should be a 30-year wine. It is a beautiful baby, but bottle age will definitely unleash more subtleties and richness. This is a full-bodied classic that is superb. (RP) 94+ Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five shows just how compelling this vintage is, even among mid-tier offerings. Dark, ample and structured to the core, the One Point Five boasts superb concentration, power and depth. Blackberry jam, gravel, smoke, licorice and savory herbs build to the vibrant, intense finish. This is an impressive showing from the One Point Five. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The finely ripened tannins of this wine show off the greatness of the 2013 vintage, their chocolate richness detailed in layers that give the wine a Stags Leap District signature. The fruit fills those layers with dark raspberry scents, floral notes and savory elements—what Gretchen Buck of SF’s Absinthe described as the lifted scent of fresh bay leaves. The Shafers blend this wine from their home vineyard, on a series of volcanic, dome-shaped hills nestled under the Stags Leap escarpment, including fruit from their Borderline Vineyard, two miles south. At 15.3 percent alcohol, this is bold, but it’s balanced, notably fine and approachable for its size. Inner quote mark (8/2016)
