"This wine was introduced to Shafer's range in 2007 with an aim to offer Stag's Leap district flavours with easy-to-love tannins. It's this combination of thrilling fruit and lush texture that makes this wine so special."
One Point Five is a Cabernet Sauvignon that celebrates two things close to the Shafer Family's hearts. The name refers to John and Doug Shafer’s 35 year father-and-son partnership. It also honors Stags Leap District, a place they've called home since 1973.
