Heiner Lobenberg über:
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five 2018

94–95+
/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. 94-95+/100

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

-- Wine Enthusiast: This is a muscular wine with a velvety backdrop—classic for the vintage and appellation. Silky tannins glide across a foundation of turned earth, crushed rock, clove and tobacco. The wine is hugely structured and grand. Dark plum, cherry and mocha flavors round out the profile. Enjoy from 2028–2035. 97/100

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

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) might be the finest vintage to date. Dense purple-hued, with a thrilling nose of blue and black fruits as well as graphite and crushed stone, it's medium to full-bodied and has a wonderfully pure, elegant texture, ample underlying tannins, and a great finish. It shows the more focused, elegant, yet structured style of the vintage to a T. 95/100

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

-- Suckling: This has a deliciously ripe and perfumed nose of blueberries, cloves, potpourri and gravel. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and fresh acidity. Creamy and elegant with a driven, focused finish. Cooler and more refined at the end. Try from 2023. 95/100

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

-- Wine Spectator: Quite lush in feel, with creamy waves of plum sauce, melted black licorice, açaí berry reduction and sweet toast rolling through, laced with subtle alder and bay leaf notes and ending with a sanguine hint amid the fruit. The buried structure will carry this in the cellar as well. Drink now through 2032. 94/100

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

-- Parker: Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five charges out of the gate with notes of crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and blackberry pie plus suggestions of bay leaves, fertile loam and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the mouth is completely coated with juicy black fruit flavors, supported by plush tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing with an invigorating herbal lift. 93/100

Shafer Vineyards

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.
