Shafer One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Red Wine
Quite lush in feel, with creamy waves of plum sauce, melted black licorice, açaí berry reduction and sweet toast rolling through, laced with subtle alder and bay leaf notes and ending with a sanguine hint amid the fruit. -WS
