2008 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five
- Napa Valley
- Stags Leap District
Community Tasting Notes 82

October 22, 2016 - Dark ruby, better serve at temperature low enough to hide alcohol. Typical Napa kind with juicy, sweet and full body. Lot of residues that should be stood up for a couple of days prior to uncork and handle with care.

October 4, 2016 - Tasted the Pichon Lalande 2003 alongside the Shafter One Point Five from 2008 and Cakebread 2009. The Pichon was more fragrant with more finesse, the Shafer more powerful and fruit forward and the Cakebread somewhere in between. People voted in different ways with the overall view that "all three were equally lovely but different"

July 26, 2016 - Very good Napa Cab. PnP. Full bodied. Smooth. Good fruit but not overripe. Had similar characteristics as the 2009 Shafer Hillside Select that was also consumed.

April 26, 2016 - 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Night (Lincoln Squre Steaks, Amsterdam Ave, New York City): This drank so much better than my last bottle. It was a little heavier than the Larkmead and not as well balanced, but still a very enjoyable wine.
April 17, 2016 - Unfortunately, this bottle was corked. Have 1 more left, hope it is better!
