Dark purple w/ fuschia rim like a malbec. Raspberry tootsie pop, prunes, jam, smoked chocolate, brand new leather furniture. Young and wound up, but rich and full of surprises to come. I've concluded it's a shame to drink a Shafer current vintage.

Opaque purple. Beautiful nose. Cassis, blueberries, blackberries, graphite, Rosemary, loads of flowers. Big, but still smooth and elegant. No hint of the 15.5% abv. I'll take this over HSS most of the time. Lovely 'big' Napa cab.

Rich and concentrated with lavish oak treatment. Well made for fans of the style, but for me; a boring echo of the California past.

And yet again Shafer produces a great bottle of the One Point Five. Drinks like a Australian Shiraz. Big, bold and chewy. Layered with oak, cedar and mocha flavors. Well done!
