Lot #774. Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five 2006

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 WSM.
"In the 2004 vintage, the Shafers replaced their Napa Valley Cabernet with One Point Five. The wine is based on the family's hillside estate vineyards and the 25-acre Borderline Vineyard, which the Shafers acquired in 1999, both in SLD's southeastern corner of the Napa Valley. This wine doesn't have the detail of their famed Hillside Select, but it's remarkably close in quality. The texture, that signal aspect of SLD fruit, is layered and as rich as French roast coffee, with an underlying tension that keeps the wine focused on high-toned red fruit, dark earth and violet scents. It's powerful and guarded when first poured, growing sleek and classical with a day of air. This should drink increasingly well . . ." Wine & Spirits Magazine, Aug 2009
