Stupendously gorgeous, always balanced yet a blockbuster in character and taste. Full-bodied with aromas of fleshy ripe black plums, toasty and some spice. Decant 2 hours and pair with a rare steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Deep purple colour with a brooding, balanced bouquet. Raspberry, plum, prune, leather, vanilla, caramel notes with a hint of skunky earthiness. Flavours are layered and complex featuring roasted red peppers, grilled cherries, smoky vanilla extract, dark chocolate, tobacco, cigarbox and toasty gaminess. High acidity and tannins with a full body and a super long finish. Flavours persist of blood sausage and clove spice. Decadent and delicious. Can age another 15 yrs. Something to experience! Pair with filet mignon, flank steak, cremini mushrooms and fennel. 93 points - November 2017
Simon Chen rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is a good 2nd label wine from Shafer for this vintage, and I like it a lot more than the Hillside. It is well-structured, just enough fruit and velvetiness that coat the initial palate, followed by acidity and tannin. A well-made napa cab that has a shadow of old-world bordeaux in it.
Shafer One Point Five (2014) from the Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley is a full-bodied red blend of 61% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance in Petit Verdot and Syrah, all from the estate on Mt. Veeder. Deep purple in the glass, this is a broody, big (15% abv) red with a rich nose of incense, anise, savoury spices, dark chocolate and espresso. Wow! This very powerful wine could easily age in cellar for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews
