Shafer Vineyards One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
On a cold day in January 1983, Doug Shafer entered the family winery for the first time as a winemaker. The future of Shafer Vineyards was an unknown back then. Doug’s father, John Shafer, had produced his first wine, 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon, which been on the market for about 18 months. Even though it would go on to win accolades, it took a long time to get their first Cabernet any attention. For the father-and-son team, it was the start of a working relationship that has lasted more than 30 years – a partnership embedded in the name One Point Five. John and Doug eventually coined the term “a generation and a half” to differentiate theirs from a traditional second-generation story.

Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap is very deep purple-black in colour and gives up intense Black Forest cake, blackberry pie and blackcurrant cordial scents with hints of liquorice, eucalyptus, espresso, tar and chargrilled beef. Full-bodied, it packs the black fruit preserves flavours and earthy accents into the palate, with a firm frame and great freshness on the finish.
