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.

Jeb DunnuckThe 100% varietal 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a head-turner and actually gives the flagship a run for its money. Stunning notes of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, tobacco, and lead pencil as well as subtle oak and violets all flow to a full-bodied 2016 that shows the elegant, purity, and balance that makes the 2016 vintage so spectacular. Aged a full 20 months in new oak, give bottles another 3-4 years and it should still be going strong at age 25.

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.

VinousAnother gorgeous wine in this range, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is fabulous. Rich, powerful and explosive, the 2016 is endowed with real energy. Lavender, sage, menthol, licorice, spice and crème de cassis are some of the notes that build in this super-expressive, layered Cabernet from Shafer. The One Point Five isn't quite the screaming value it was a few years ago, but it is nevertheless terrific. Drink it over the next handful of years.

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.
