Delicious with a mid rare ribeye. Breathed in glass for 3 hours before the meal. Plush blue fruit and nicely integrated oak.

The color is very opaque. The leg drip is 9 seconds at 3/4 glass start to 1/4 glass. The boquet is blackberry pie. There is no tanic / alcohol aroma at all. The initial palate is that of blackberry, currant, cigars, and pepper. The finish is butter. No aftertaste. It is dry, but not over done! Perfection in a wine. Finally!!!!!!!!!!! worth every penny!

Opens a bit disjointed, as though you surprised it while it was getting dressed. An hour later, it has relaxed, regained its poise, and is starting to impress anyone nearby. Acid, fruit, tannins, balanced alcohol: this bottle has years ahead of it. Well, not this bottle, but you know what I mean.

The first vintage of One Point Five. Still young and fresh.

Have not had a bad one of these, just consistently great wine. Fruit forward with spice and great tannin. Still has plenty of life left. Sad this was my last one

2013 Shafer one point five cabernet sauvignon from the Stags Leap district of coarse! Well, perfection dad and son! John and Doug, you guys have mastered it. The cork was in perfect condition. After a 45 min eternity of time for decanting, the color is as dark as the night sky on a stormy night in the hills of Tennessee. The legs are slow and thick. The bouquet is peppered cranberry juice with a twist of rip figs growing on the tree. The initial palate is reminiscent of buttered toast and blackberry jam. There is a hint of spice and black pepper. On the finish which is very long, I detect black coffee and dark chocolate - not the Dove version, but the bitter version. There is an fired oaky wood flavor with a blast of a maduro cigar! The finish is very dry and if I don't get a sip of water soon My tongue my shrivel up. But I need another sip first!
Fantastic wine!
Here is a toast to the Shafer family and to my wonderful and beautiful Dayanara on our new home!
Cheers!

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.
