Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 2015
OK…so…picking jaw up off the floor…
WOW! Do NOT wait a moment more than necessary, we barely have a handful…
COLLECTORS! Lucky Break indeed! That moniker is reserved for special wines that we are truly lucky enough to even GET, and the 97-point Shafer One Point Five from the Stag’s Leap District is about as head-spinning as a lucky break can be. Did we say wow? Goodness, we are short of breath a bit here.
Shafer Vineyards is one of Napa’s MOST-loved wineries. The people behind it (Doug Shafer, of course, and human-beings-don’t get-better-than-this winemaker extraordinaire Elias Fernandez, among others) are salt-of-the-earth guys who just make killer wine year after year, that is so allocated we never get but a few bottles. Seriously, this mind-bending 2015 is a 97-pointer! C’mon!

It is IMPERATIVE that you get a few of these for your cellar. Here are a few comments from the press: “...a fabulous example of the year at its best...extracted black fruit is poised amongst earthy truffle, crushed rock and black pepper...Full-bodied with a strong entrée of black fruit but with driven acidity, muscular tannins and a long finish...Very big, full-bodied and packed with black fruit preserves…”
Well, hard to top that. We couldn’t agree more -- our chests are all puffed up with pride. Shafer! Amazing! FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED…!
