Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The 2015 vintage was released last fall and like with each vintage, it comes from 100% of Shafer's hillside estate vineyards including the vineyard blocks Sunspot, John's Upper Seven, Venado Ilegal and Firebreak. " The 2015 gave us smaller berries packed with an immensity of pure, opulent aromas and flavors. This rich, polished hillside Cabernet Sauvignon overflows with briary black fruit, juicy black cherry, racy dried cranberry, black licorice, and freshly cracked pepper with elegant touches of cedar, baking spice, and wet stone. The finish is generous and persistent, while the tannins are ripe and integrated offering both a pleasurable experience now and the kind of structure that promises even more beauty with time.” — Elias Fernandez, winemaker.
Shafer 'One Point Five' Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
One Point Five is an elegant, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with plush tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. This wine reflects the climate and soils of Shafer's Stags Leap District vineyard sites and their commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality winemaking. “In your glass the wine introduces itself with enticing aromas of red and black fruit, baking spice, dark violets, lavender, wet stone, and cinnamon. The promise of all that delicious complexity is fulfilled with a racy Cabernet Sauvignon full of energy – juicy flavors of red plum, cherry, cassis, black tea, and cola – all beautifully packaged together with ripe, bright tannins made for right now enjoyment as well as long term aging in your cellar.” — Elias Fernandez, winemaker.
