($70) Bright ruby-red. Fresh aromas and flavors of black raspberry, dark cherry, leather and sexy oak spices, with a hint of dill. Supple, suave and sweet, with ripe acids energizing the mid-palate of this chewy wine. The leathery hint carries through to the finish, which features firm, dusty tannins and lingering sweet fruit.

The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (includes 1% Petit Verdot, 10,000 cases produced) offers up juicy red and black fruit notes intermixed with licorice, coffee beans, and camphor as well as an impressive, full-bodied texture, good elegance, and floral undertones. With a savory, broad texture, this beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years.

Intense and rustic, raw and concentrated, with chewy dried currant, wild berry, anise, sage and mineral, offering all the ingredients of flavor and structure, but in need of time.

The WA review is spot on. Good blueberry aroma. Full bodied, with dark berries on the palate. Very long finish and definitely NOT chewy.

Lovely Stag's Leap cab. Fruit forward, gravel and mineral notes, deep ruby color, full bodied and firm tannins. We will drink this again wine is recommended.

About This Producer


John Shafer began working and replanting steep, rocky vineyards in Napa Valley's Stags Leap District in 1972, and has since built Shafer into one of the most sought-after labels from Napa. John, his son Doug, and winemaker Elias Fernandez call themselves farmers, and are proud of it. Doug took over the vineyards in 1989, and within a year began to integrate organic techniques into his vineyards while the term "organic" still elicited sideways looks. "My soils were getting tired," Doug says. "They had been farmed since 1922." He installed solar panels in 2004, and now enjoys watching his batteries send power back to the grid. Elias was hired by Shafer in 1984 and named winemaker in 1994. Shafer Hillside Select is a benchmark wine of the Stag's Leap District, with a string of awards too long to list. Aged a full four years prior to release, it is, in the words of Robert Parker, "One of the world's, as well as Napa's, most profound Cabernet Sauvignons."
