The sensational 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five, which is their Stags Leap blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 70% new oak barrels, of which half are French and half American. It’s the latter component that surprised me, because whatever American oak they’re using is wonderfully subtle and well-integrated. This wine has an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of charcoal, graphite, blackberry and an essence of gorgeously pure creme de cassis fruit mixed with spring flowers. With impeccably and flawlessly integrated oak, acidity and tannin, this full-bodied yet elegant and stunning wine is just coming into its plateau of maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years. Like the Merlot, this tips the scales at 14.9% alcohol. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Complex aromas and flavors of cassis leather earth game tobacco and sexy smoky oak with a minty nuance emerging with air. Creamy-sweet and expansive in the mouth with an almost exotic character to the intense fruit. As lush as this is though it maintains firm shape. Finishes with substantial broad dusty tannins and impressive lingering sweetness.
