Wine EnthusiastTaut and leathery, this is a thickly tannic, incredibly structured and powerful wine, softened by 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec. Extracted black fruit is poised amongst earthy truffle, crushed rock and black pepper, the aromas and flavors integrated and built to age. Enjoy best 2025-2030.
Wine Review OnlineShafer’s Bordeaux-style blend from this vintage is a stunning example of the excellence Shafer has produced for more than three decades. Primarily cabernet sauvignon (90 percent) with a splash of merlot and Malbec, the 2015 sings with freshness and flavor from the first sip until the last. It exhibits a seductive floral note, with mixed black fruits, aromas of savory herbs and sweet spices, and a long, impressive finish.
Wine SpectatorStrikingly complex and engaging, offering tiers of flavor, including dark berry, cedar, graphite and oak, presented in a style that lets the elements speak through the tannins. Drink now through 2030. 9,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateA blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap has an earthy/meaty nose, featuring notions of tar and charcuterie over crÃ¨me de cassis and baked plums plus a hint of licorice. Very big, full-bodied and packed with black fruit preserves in the mouth, it has a chewy backbone and lively lift to the earthy/savory finish.
