Aromas of pure, elegant black fruit, dark chocolate, and spice, followed by rich, juicy flavors of blackberry and black cherry, chocolate, and cedar, with ripe, smooth tannins and a long finish.
The beautiful 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (7,000-8,000 cases produced) exhibits a dense purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of boysenberries, black currants, subtle toast and spice and a slight floral component. The wine is medium to full-bodied with good acidity, a voluptuous texture and impressive purity and length. Drink this stunning Cabernet over the next 15 years.
Elias Fernandez blends this wine from Shafer's vineyards under the Stags leap escarpment and the family's Borderline Vineyard. It has the balance of freshness and intensity that the best Napa Valley 2007s can claim, a supple and delicious red with complexity riding beneath lush cherry fruit. Scents of mineral tannins, mesquite and tobacco hint at the development that will come with eight to ten years in bottle.
Bright ruby-red. Fresh aromas and flavors of black raspberry, dark cherry, leather and sexy oak spices, with a hint of dill. Supple, suave and sweet, with ripe acids energizing the mid-palate of this chewy wine. The leathery hint carries through to the finish, which features firm, dusty tannins and lingering sweet fruit.
A good, lusty wine, although it's too young now, offering a big mouthful of tannins, acidity and immature fruit. A blend of 99% Cab and 1% Petit Verdot, it’s a hard wine, but the flavors are immaculate, suggesting ripe blackberries and currants that veer into a touch of raisin.
