Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

$109.50

I’m happy to be able to offer the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five – one of the jewels of Stag’s Leap – which should find a happy home in any well apportioned cellar. It’s one that will really benefit from a few more years of age, but it’s already showing what its going to be capable of.

Made in a super fleshy, velvety style, the wine is so smooth out of the gate and will only be more so over the next few years.

Jeb Dunnuck – formally of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – started his 96 point review with “The … One Point Five is a gem of a wine that readers will love to have in their cellars. Sweet cassis, violets, and graphite define the bulk of the aromas, and it’s a classic Napa Valley Cabernet on the palate with its full-bodied richness, velvety tannins, and opulent yet balanced style.”

James Suckling, never one to dip his quill more than once, was driven to hit the carriage return a few times on this one: “Blackberries and blueberries with cherries, too. The palate is very polished and refined with fresh, velvety tannins that provide tension and verve. It’s long and vivid with polish and beauty. Drinkable now, but give it at least three or four years to soften. Better after 2026.”

“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a gem of a wine that readers will love to have in their cellars. Sweet cassis, violets, and graphite define the bulk of the aromas, and it’s a classic Napa Valley Cabernet on the palate with its full-bodied richness, velvety tannins, and opulent yet balanced style. A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, raised 20 months in new barrels, it’s going to keep for a solid two decades.”
