- Named for the relationship dynamic shared by John Shafer, who started the winery in 1978 and son Doug, who joined 4 years later, it just didn't feel like a second generation, it felt more like a generation and a half. Or one point five. Culled from 2 Stags Leap sites and aged in new French oak, both Alliers and Tronçais, for 20 months (or in years, one point six), their elegantly muscular Cabernet packs a silken wallop.
