About This Wine

In 1972, John Shafer left a 23-year career in publishing and moved to the Napa Valley.

After purchasing a 210-acre estate in the Stags Leap District, the Shafer family faced the arduous task of replanting the existing vineyards, which dated to the 1920s, and terracing the steep and rocky hillsides, eventually expanding the vineyard to 50 acres.

Evolving from growers to vintners, the Shafers crushed their first Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in 1978, and began construction on their winery a year later. Doug Shafer became winemaker in 1983 after graduating from U.C. Davis with a degree in enology and viticulture. A year later, Elias Fernandez was named assistant winemaker. They have worked closely to forge the Shafer style of quality, consistency and elegance.

The 2009 “One Point Five” Cabernet Sauvignon — its name representing the generation-and-a-half that John and Doug Shafer have been making wine — is elegant and silky. It’s truly a wine for the ages.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
