Founded in 1978, Shafer Vineyards is situated in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, east of the Silverado Trail and just north of the town of Napa. Although their main focus has always been luxuriant, richly textured Cabernet Sauvignons from their Stags Leap vineyards, father and son John and Doug Shafer also own and farm vineyards throughout Napa Valley and Carneros. Low fertility, hillside sites have always been a major priority, as has the adoption of the finest, low vigour rootstocks and clones, leading to extremely low yields of small intensely concentrated grapes. They are also passionate exponents of sustainable farming practices in which they eschew all forms of chemical sprays and their vineyards teem with natural predators including bats, owls, and a variety of insects. The resulting raw materials are of the highest quality and provide them with numerous, stylistic options in the winery. Winemaking, in the hands of Doug Shafer and Elias Fernandez, also follows a similar philosophy of allowing the fruit full expression and with a minimum of intervention.
Shafer Vineyards One Point Five 2015
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Malbec from two Stags Leap District sites – Shafer’s Hillside Estate Vineyard and Borderline Vineyard, located about two miles south of the winery. Aged for 20 months in 100% new oak barrels (Allier & Troncais). The warm, dry 2015 vintage gave smaller berries packed with rich colour and intense flavour, resulting in wines with excellent structure and extraction that are destined to age beautifully. “The 2015 bursts with bright, energetic aromas and flavours of fresh black cherry, black plum right from the tree, pomegranate, wet slate, peppercorn, lavender and savoury herbs. The flavours have long, beautiful length in the mouth and the wine’s classic Stags Leap District tannins offer structure and promise for delicious things to come in the cellar”. Elias Fernandez, Winemaker.
