2008 Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley USA
Vinous(15.1% alcohol; includes 2% petit verdot): Bright, deep red. Aromatic, rather claret-like nose combines currant, tobacco, black licorice and minerals; more red fruit than black. Much less forthcoming on the palate than the merlot, showing strong soil tones and minerality to the cherry and cedar flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty, palate-saturating tannins. A serious, ageworthy wine with attractive floral lift.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five should turn out to be just as good. Slightly more powerful with sweeter fruit as well as more glycerin and fat, this is a big, full-bodied Stags Leap Cabernet offering abundant notes of roasted herbs, chocolate, cassis, incense and earth. Drink this deep, powerful 2008 over the next 10-15 years.
