USA - California - Napa - Stags Leap District

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
Producer Notes

John Shafer began working and replanting steep, rocky vineyards in Napa Valley's Stags Leap District in 1972, and has since built Shafer into one of the most sought-after labels from Napa. John, his son Doug, and winemaker Elias Fernandez call themselves farmers, and are proud of it. Doug took over the vineyards in 1989, and within a year began to integrate organic techniques into his vineyards... More »

Issue Issue 156

(15.1% alcohol; includes 2% petit verdot): Bright, deep red. Aromatic, rather claret-like nose combines currant, tobacco, black licorice and minerals; more red fruit than black. Much less forthcoming on the palate than the merlot, showing strong soil tones and minerality to the cherry and cedar flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, palate-saturating tannins. A serious, ageworthy wine with attractive floral lift.

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.

Drink Dates 2011-2018

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. 7,800 cases made.

Dark, intense nose with coffee and chocolate with some high toned fruit notes. The palate is backward and fairly tannic but there are gobs of youthful fruit here that show with air.

This wine has obviously mellowed since WS reviewed it. It is very well balanced with good depth. Lots of blackberries, and a hint of graphite. Good finish.

Nose had a fig/prune quality to it that kind of ruined it for me ... disappointed in this one.

Standard Shafer fare - notes of vanilla, great nose, very dark in color. Good wine - not the best QPR, but a good drink.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
