Winemaker Notes:

In your glass the wine introduces itself with enticing aromas of red and black fruit, baking spice, dark violets, lavender, wet stone, and cinnamon. The promise of all that delicious complexity is fulfilled with a racy Cabernet Sauvignon full of energy - juicy flavors of red plum, cherry, cassis, black tea, and cola - all beautifully packaged together with ripe, bright tannins made for right-now enjoyment as well as long term aging in your cellar.

Critical Acclaim:

95 points - James Suckling
"Fresh cassis and blueberries with crushed violets and stones, too. This is fresh and complex. The palate carries a smooth, supple and tautly refined brand of tannin and a succulently fresh core of blue plums and blueberries. Drink or hold."

94 points - Wine Enthusiast
"The name signifying a generation and a half of Shafers (Doug and his late father, John), this is a powerfully built, robust and rounded wine. Sage and violet aromas lead to a strong, sturdy core of tannin, o ak and muscle, developed with sweet tobacco, cassis and cola."

93 points - Jeb Dunnuck
"Cut from the same cloth, yet with a touch of rusticity in its tannins, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five offers a full-bodied, rounded, structured style as well as loads of sweet red and black fruits, toasted spice, and herbed de Provence like notes. It's a powerful, concentrated wine, has loads of fruit, and is going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age."

93 points - Tasting Panel
"Deep garnet color; juicy, tangy, and balanced, with lush berry flavors; dense and long. Not bad for a "second wine"!"

93 points - Wine Spectator
"This offers fruit in spades, delivering a lush, seductive profile of blueberry, açai and cassis notes infused with mocha and sweet tobacco accents, ending with a melted licorice feel. Rich, polished and long. Drink now through 2030."

91 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Made up of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is deep garnet-purple colored with pronounced creme de cassis, blackberry pie and black forest cake notes with waft of bay leaves, cigar box, tar and smoked meats. The palate is full-bodied, firm and chewy with a taut, muscular mid-palate and an herb-lifted finish."
