Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

One Point Five is an elegant, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with soft tannins and abundant fruit that is approachable when young, yet capable of aging gracefully. This wine reflects the climate and soils of our Stags Leap District vineyard sites and Shafer's commitment to meticulous, sustainable farming and quality winemaking.

Critical Acclaim

"Herbs, graphite, menthol, pine and black plums meld together in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five. The 2011 is decidedly dark, intensely mineral and savory throughout. Sage, rosemary and anise are some of the many nuances that add depth over time. In 2011, the blend includes 5% Petit Verdot, which contributes to the wine's dark, balsamic-inflected personality."
93 Points

"A revelation, it is hard to believe the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) came from a challenging vintage of cool weather and rainy periods. It boasts an inky/purple color along with sweet cassis and mulberry fruit intermixed with notions of high quality toast and spring flowers. Although it does not reveal the mid-palate density and impact or finish of the 2010, the 2011 is an outstanding success for the vintage.

Range: 90-92 Points"

This wine is all about family!(The term "a generation and a half," coined by John and Doug Shafer to describe their long father-and-son partnership. Since 1983 this family team has worked side by side to manage their Stags Leap District winery." Palate shows red and black fruit with a steak of chalk, this is an excellent fine dining wine. Shows power and finesse.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
