    September 13, 2017 - We wanted to open a special bottle for our 3rd anniversary, so we went with a bottle purchased during our honeymoon. While visiting Shafer vineyards, the 2004 One Point Five was their cellar selection, purchased for $95. Once the cork was popped, the aromas were immediately evident. Let it breathe for 1 hour in a decanter. On the nose were notes of blue and black fruits, sandalwood, forest floor and an almost perfume like aroma. Flavors of blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate and earth with a finish that lasted 40 seconds. This wine took me back to our visit to Shafer vineyards and I cannot wait to go back.

    June 6, 2017 - Ready to go after just a little air. Smooth and seamless, with lots of dark cherry throughout and rather more elegance than I expected. Tannins are fine and unobtrusive but still have plenty of grip. Delightful.

    May 18, 2017 - Decanted off its sediment an served immediately. Mouthwatering aromas of grilled meat, cassis, blueberry, dried tobacco, sage, and cedar. Smooth and polished on the palate, with resolved tannins and excellent acidity. The finish does peter out, however. Nonetheless, this a very nice wine to be enjoyed with a steak. Fully mature and ready to go; there's really no need to hold it any longer.
