95+
/100

Lobenberg: Druck, satte Frucht, dynamische, fast dramatische Nase, vibrierende Frucht im Mund, immer auf der perfekt balancierten Seite bleibend. Von dem Wein wird niemals ein Tropfen in der Flasche übrig bleiben. 95+/100

Falstaff über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Falstaff: Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarter Wasserrand. Reife Brombeeren, frisches Cassis, zart nach Minze und Limettenzesten, im Hintergrund Röstaromen, angenehme Edelholzwürze, sehr facettenreiches Bukett. Saftig, komplex und rund, extraktsüße Textur, feste Tannine, die lange tragen, mineralisch und anhaftend, feines Nougat, zarte Mineralität im Hintergrund, sehr kraftvolles, und dennoch elegantes Finale, würzig-pfeffriger Nachhall. 96/100

Parker über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Parker: Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap is very deep purple-black in color and gives up intense Black Forest cake, black berry pie and blackcurrant cordial scents with hints of licorice, eucalyptus, espresso, tar and chargrilled beef. Full-bodied, it packs the black fruit preserves flavors and earthy accents into the palate, with a firm frame and great freshness on the finish. 95/100

Suckling über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Suckling: Very strong and pure aromas of blackcurrants with violets and lightly herbal notes, leading to a palate that has dark-mineral allure. This delivers attractive, ripe dark berries with a very long, focused and assertive, neatly cut finish. Elegance with power. Drink or hold. 95/100

Wine Enthusiast über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Wine Enthusiast: This wine is sourced from the producer's Hillside Estate and Borderline Vineyards two miles south of the winery. It offers toasted oak, leather, clove and cinnamon—a savory profile that's deceptively fresh in underlying acidity. Dark plum and black cherry flavors are lushly textured and spicy on the palate. 95/100

Weingut über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Weingut: The vintage gave us ripe, beautiful fruit with abundant aromas and flavors. Round, rich, and smooth, this classic, precision Cabernet is aromatic in the glass, and complex and compelling in the mouth serving up layer upon layer of red and black fruit: red plum, briar and bramble fruit, black cherry, summer berry compote, and pomegranate with a touch of savory herbs. The tannins are structured and ripe, promising a long, delicious life in your cellar.

Jeb Dunnuck über: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 100% varietal 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a head-turner and actually gives the flagship a run for its money. Stunning notes of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, tobacco, and lead pencil as well as subtle oak and violets all flow to a full-bodied 2016 that shows the elegant, purity, and balance that makes the 2016 vintage so spectacular. Aged a full 20 months in new oak, give bottles another 3-4 years and it should still be going strong at age 25. 95/100

Shafer Vinyards im Stags Leap District ist zweifellos eine der amerikanischen Vorzeige-Stories schlechthin. John R. Shafer hing in den frühen 70er Jahren mit 50 seinen alten Bürojob als Marketing-Experte an den Nagel und wollte Wein machen. […]
