- Shafer Cabernet One Point Five 2012 Product #29686 (In Stock)
A great vintage for this Napa classic. Limited, thought.
"Dark plum, mocha, red cherry, spice and tobacco are some of the many notes that blossom in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five. The 2012 is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon built on voluptuous fruit, power and pure resonance." Vinous 93 points
"The cool fruit and richness to this is fantastic. Tar, raspberries, blueberries and hints of coffee. It’s subtle and rich, going on for minutes on the palate. This comes mostly from vineyards on the flat land of southern Stag’s Leap and shows a minerally undertone. Makes you want to drink it. Slightly more than 15% alcohol but it remains fresh and crisp. Some violet and oak nuances. Why wait?" JamesSuckling.com 94 points
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon One Pint Five is a big-time winner, a blend of almost all Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine has an opaque bluish/purple color, almost indigo, and is full-bodied with dense chocolaty crème de cassis notes, licorice and a touch of minerality. The wine has well-integrated wood, is full and seems balanced and rich enough to age for two decades or more."Wine Advocate 94 points
"Crushed blackberries compete with a hearty bouquet of violet in this gigantically powerful and structured wine. Soft and leathery, it features spikes of black pepper, vanilla and pungent black earth amid a dense, concentrated finesse of tannin and oak, with a lengthy finish awaiting. This is power at its best, a reflection of an idyllic vintage in the hands of a skilled producer."Wine Enthusiast 94 points
