Shafer

This is a Cabernet that is enjoyable now and will just get better with time in the cellar. Aromas of rich, polished black fruit, mocha, and spice, followed by fulsome, juicy flavors of blackberry and black cherry, chocolate, plum and cedar, with ripe, smooth tannins and a pleasingly long finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Aged in 100% new French oak, this 100% Cabernet is big, sweet and tannic. It's offering little beyond exceptionally rich, ripe flavors of blackberries, black currants and dark chocolate. It's almost like a Port wine whose high alcohol is an integral part of the package. Shows the dramatic flair of all Shafer's red wines, but you might want to cellar it for 5-6 years.

Score: 92. —Steve Heimoff, July 01, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five comes across as silky and seductive. Ripe red berries, flowers, mint and spices caress the palate in this understated, gracious wine. The 2009 impresses for its seamless texture and long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

Score: 91. —Antonio Galloni, December 2011.

Wine Spectator

Rustic, with a chewy edge to the loamy earth and cedar. The core currant and dark berry flavors are intense and concentrated, and this ends with chunky tannins. Fans of that rustic character will happily chew through this. Best from 2013 through 2022. 8,500 cases made.

Score: 90. —James Laube, 2012.
