    August 17, 2014 - Coming onto seven years after picking, this wine is really just now coming into a great drinking window. Garnet in color, long legs, interesting aroma of loam and forest meadow, tastes of dark fruit, with hints of cocoa, coffee. Tannins are both structured and silky, creating a mouth watering pleasure with a long finish. I'm looking forward to the next seven plus years.

    July 1, 2014 - Drinking very nice right now, some strange (not negative) notes that I couldn't identify, I had to look twice to make sure I had not picked a CdP.

    June 2, 2014 - Very few wines do it for me like the One Point Five and the 07 is my favorite vintage ever (although the 2009 is in a mighty tasty place right now). We let this decant for a good two hours and still tasted great the next day. One thing about Shafter is that they can be happily consumed on release and continue to evolve for years.

    May 27, 2014 - Insignia, Shafer, Peppiere (My backyard): This has always been my favorite vintage for this wine. While it still has a long life ahead, it has lost its youthful exuberance that I loved. Still a beautiful cab. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cassis, coffee, and some leather. Showing depth and some tight layering. Great cassis fruit on the palate. Nice finish.

    April 13, 2014 - tannins were dusty, decanted and it came to life as is typical for this "go to" cab
