One Point Five celebrates lasting bonds, taking its name from the term “a generation and a half,” once coined by John and Doug Shafer to describe their long, accomplished father-and-son partnership. These two worked side by side for decades leading our Stags Leap District winery, always with a spirit of energy and teamwork that continues to inspire everything we do at Shafer today.
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.
The 2019 Growing Season: The long, sunny 2019 summer created a beautiful growing season for our Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit developed rich color and classic, elegant aromas and flavors.
Brix at Harvest: 23.5° - 25.8°
Cooperage: 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels (Allier & Tronçais)
“2019 One Point Five fills your glass with a generous, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon offering aromas and flavors of bright black cherry, red currant, cranberry, lavender, allspice, and crushed herbs. All this lush, vivid fruit is seamlessly brought together with ripe, cashmere-like tannins that promise years of beauty ahead with careful cellaring.” — Shafer winemaker Elias Fernandez
