Wow once this opens up it is extremely balanced and just lovely. — 4 days ago
Maybe best can franc ever from Napa. Nose of peppers black and green, raw cocoa, violets, plums, black cherries. Palate is silky smooth with herbs, cocoa, cherry, pepper, tannin, hint of eucalyptus, a wonderful finish that is so balanced. Insane! — a month ago
Last nights wine we opened was the 2018 Shafer One Point Five Stags Leap District Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec.
On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, sweet tobacco, rose petals, mint and rich earth.
On the palate are wonderful notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, licorice, lavender, spice, cedar and earth.
This wine is medium to full bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium + smooth round tannins that moves wonderfully into a long dark fruit earthy finish. The weekend is moving swimmingly forward with wonderful friends and loving family. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
