SHAFER ONE POINT FIVE
CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014
Stags Leap District, Napa Valley
One of the foundational names in premium Napa
wine, Shafer is still run by the same team. John
Shafer came to Napa in 1972, and his first wine, a
1978 Cabernet, was released in 1981. The 2014
is characteristically powerful and impressive.
