Crafted by Elias Fernandez, the winemaker at Shafer Vineyards, the Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2021 epitomizes the timeless elegance of top Napa Valley vineyards. This wine pays homage to the founding partnership of John and Doug Shafer, representing not a second-generation story but a generation and a half.

The 2021 vintage, released on September 1, benefited from an idyllic growing season with a long, sunny summer. Harvested from Shafer’s hillside estate vineyards, the “Borderline” vineyard in Stags Leap District, and selected Napa Valley sites, the varietal composition includes 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petite Verdot, 2% Merlot, and 1% Malbec.

With a rich color and clean, elegant, and pure aromas, the wine captivates with lush, intense notes of black cherry, crème de cassis, black plum, lavender, and savory herbs. Elias Fernandez describes the 2021 One Point Five as a classic Cabernet Sauvignon, showcasing a perfect balance of richness and structure. The seamlessly integrated tannins promise decades of beauty.

Critical acclaims, such as the impressive 96 points from Wine Enthusiast, celebrate the wine’s sophistication. Velvety tannins wrap around flavors of dark plums, blueberries, and cocoa, enhanced by subtle notes of baking spices, espresso, and cedar. This Cabernet Sauvignon sets the stage for a potentially long and graceful evolution. Shafer Vineyards continues its legacy of excellence, creating a wine that embodies the best of Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District.
