June 7, 2014 - I liked this much better than the 2007 One Point Five I had the other night because it showed more black fruit and had a longer finish. Really showing well right now.

March 28, 2014 - I really liked this wine but it confused me. I have been a fan of Shafer's Cabs for many years. Had I not known what this wine was, I would have thought it a Shiraz, with notes of blueberry, vanilla, peppers dominating. The alcohol - 15% - comes through but it is a lovely, harmonious wine with a lovely soft texture and a lengthy finish. Maybe it's just been a long week and I need to open another bottle tomorrow evening! Lovely but perplexing wine!1 person found this helpful Comment

March 20, 2014 - Very dark purple. Blackberries, cassis and tobacco on the nose. Rich and opulent with a healthy dose of tannins that will ensure a long life. Nice length. Great now with further potential for 10+ years.

February 13, 2014 - took to Italian restaurant and ate with Bolognese; hard to beat the combination. Rich but balanced; fruit is there in spades but settled in beautifully. Lots more life to this one.

February 11, 2014 - Clear, deep purple. Had an pronounced intensity on the nose of dark fruit blackcurrant/ blackberry/ ripe but not cooked/ peppery spice/ vanilla, still developing.
Was dry on the palate with med plus acidity and fine high tannins, high alcohol, full bodied, pronounced intensity, more dark fruit, green pepper, graphite, nice long finish
Enjoyed this very much from a 375ml could definitely develop further but had nice fruit forward ness and fine tannin to make it pleasurable now
