2004 Shafer Vineyards One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 

Shafer Vineyards is a family-owned wine producer in the Stags Leap District of the Napa Valley. It is particularly known for its Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon, regarded as one of the very finest wines in California. With the first wines appearing in 1978, Shafer Vineyards is one of the founding estates of – and a benchmark in quality for – the Stags Leap District AVA. The scores for Hillside Select have been incredibly consistent in the 97 to 100 point range. 

Shafer has around 140 acres of vines in the Stags Leap District, spread out across several vineyards. The Hillside Estate vineyard has shallow, free-draining soils tha produce small, intensly flavored berries. The best blocks are used to make the Hillside Select, a plummy, cherry-laden wine with ripe tannins that will age well for a decade or more.

Robert Parker 94 RP - Shafer’s 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five, composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, has been a brilliant introduction to their portfolio of Stags Leap offerings. It spends 21 months in two-thirds new oak. The wine’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by a wine with glorious opulence, abundant fruit, supple, sweet tannins, a round, generous, mouthfilling texture and stunning purity as well as complexity. This terrific example of Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking beautifully at present, should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and will last for another decade thereafter.
