Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is sourced from the producer's Hillside Estate and Borderline Vineyards two miles south of the winery. It offers toasted oak, leather, clove and cinnamon-a savory profile that's deceptively fresh in underlying acidity. Dark plum and black cherry flavors are lushly textured and spicy on the palate.
Wine SpectatorMint, sage, pepper and tobacco notes lead off, followed quickly by dark plum and boysenberry fruit. Warm ganache accents frame the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2026.
