    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a Cabernet that is so enjoyable now and will just get better with time in the cellar. Aromas of rich, polished black fruit, mocha, and spice, followed by fulsome, juicy flavors of blackberry and black cherry, chocolate, plum and cedar, with ripe, smooth tannins and a pleasingly long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five should turn out to be just as good. Slightly more powerful with sweeter fruit as well as more glycerin and fat, this is a big, full-bodied Stags Leap Cabernet offering abundant notes of roasted herbs, chocolate, cassis, incense and earth. Drink this deep, powerful 2008 over the next 10-15 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Full-bodied and rich, as all Shafer reds are, this wine's blackberry, blueberry, currant and cassis flavors were aged in 100% new French oak, but the smoky wood overlay is seamless. The tannins are big, and the wine has a drink-me-now sweetness, but it really needs time. Give it a good 5-7 years.

    This is wonderfully subtle and precise. Full bodied and fruity, with great brightness in the fruit and fresh acidity. The finish is beautiful, I can't wait to see where this ends up. It will be on the market in March 2011.

    Rough-hewn, chunky and extracted, with dried herb, leather, dried berry and sage. Not the typical Shafer polish, but consistent with the One Point Five style. Decant. Drink now through 2018.
