2015 Shafer "One Point Five" Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1355490 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Taut and leathery, this is a thickly tannic, incredibly structured and powerful wine, softened by 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec. Extracted black fruit is poised amongst earthy truffle, crushed rock and black pepper, the aromas and flavors intefrated and built to age. Enjoy best 2025-2030. *Cellar Selection, No. 12 Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018* (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows nice concentration on the nose in terms of ash and blackcurrant but also some pretty floral elements with violets and jasmine. Full-bodied with a strong entrée of black fruit but with driven acidity, muscular tannins and a long finish. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon (there’s 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec), the 2015 One-Point Five is another full-bodied, powerful yet elegant wine from this estate. Giving up rocking notes of crème de cassis, graphite, smoke tobacco, and licorice, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, tons of fruit and texture, remarkable purity, and a great finish. It’s a quintessential Napa Cabernet that’s going to put a smile on your face over the coming 15 years or more. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a fabulous example of the year at its best. Super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, mint, rose petal and spice infuse this voluptuous, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Readers looking for a wine to drink with minimal cellaring will find much to admire in this sexy, racy Cabernet. Even with all of its up-front fruit, the 2015 has quite a bit of depth and tannin to support at least a handful of years of fine drinking. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Strikingly complex and engaging, offering tiers of flavor, including dark berry, cedar, graphite and oak, presented in a style that lets the elements speak through the tannins. Drink now through 2030. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The small, concentrated 2015 vintage produced a One Point Five Cabernet that's less approachable now than in previous years, yet better built for the long haul. The brawny tannins mask the textbook Stags Leap District blackberry fruit, though it's certainly there, as well as oak vanillin and a savoury earthiness. 100% new French oak. Drinking Window 2023 - 2033. (LM) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Doug Shafer grows formidable Cabernets at his family’s estate vineyards, this one clocking in at 15.3 percent alcohol. But it wears that power well, building intensity into a tight structure, offering an immediate impression of elegance. It’s heady with an umeboshi plum scent, and chunky with chocolate-covered-cherry flavors. Decant it several hours before you grill a butterflied leg of lamb studded with rosemary and garlic. Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap has an earthy/meaty nose, featuring notions of tar and charcuterie over crème de cassis and baked plums plus a hint of licorice. Very big, full-bodied and packed with black fruit preserves in the mouth, it has a chewy backbone and lively lift to the earthy/savory finish. (LPB) 91+ Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bright crimson. Attractively toasty (not oaky) and mellow on the nose. Lots of sweetness on palate entry – search perhaps in vain for the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon – but no excess alcohol. This is nicely balanced and has good freshness. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2018)
