Shafer One Point Five

Napa Valley’s Shafer Vineyards, recipients of the James Beard Foundation’s 2010 “Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional” award, recently released their 2007 One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon.

Located in the Stag’s Leap District of the region, Shafer has continuously produced top-rated Cabernets, Chardonnays and Merlots under the guidance of winemaker Elias Fernandez, and this release is no exception. Comprised of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petite Verdot, the 2007 spent 20 months in 75% new French oak and 25% one-year-old French oak barrels.

And while the name One Point Five may elicit thoughts of a software upgrade its provenance is actually a bit of a familial in-joke: Doug Shafer joined his father John in 1983, just two years after Shafer’s initial release. It wasn’t so much a new generation taking over as a son catching up to his father. Nearly 17 years later, that partnership has been recognized by the James Beard Foundation for its fecundity.
