One Point Five is an elegant, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with soft tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. This wine reflects the climate and soils of our Stags Leap District vineyard sites and Shafer's commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality winemaking. The vintage gave us ripe, beautiful fruit with abundant aromas and flavors. Round, rich, and smooth, this classic, precision Cabernet is aromatic in the glass, and complex and compelling in the mouth serving up layer upon layer of red and black fruit: red plum, briar and bramble fruit, black cherry, summer berry compote, and pomegranate with a touch of savory herbs. The tannins are structured and ripe, promising a long, delicious life in your cellar.

Wine AdvocateMade of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap is very deep purple-black in color and gives up intense Black Forest cake, black berry pie and blackcurrant cordial scents with hints of licorice, eucalyptus, espresso, tar and chargrilled beef. Full-bodied, it packs the black fruit preserves flavors and earthy accents into the palate, with a firm frame and great freshness on the finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is sourced from the producer's Hillside Estate and Borderline Vineyards two miles south of the winery. It offers toasted oak, leather, clove and cinnamon-a savory profile that's deceptively fresh in underlying acidity. Dark plum and black cherry flavors are lushly textured and spicy on the palate.

Wine SpectatorMint, sage, pepper and tobacco notes lead off, followed quickly by dark plum and boysenberry fruit. Warm ganache accents frame the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2026.
