2004 Stags Leap Dist Cabernet Sauvignon
About as balanced a wine as you can get. Lovely finish is pure fruit and chocolate. Pristine and pure Cabernet!
For being just up the road from Rutherford, these wines (Lots 15 and 16) are worlds apart. Beautiful, elegant nose of cherries, berries, and violets. Once this Cab hits the palate, though, one notices something very different about it: Incredibly smooth entry leads into a complex mouthful of fruit flavors that rise up with virtually no detectable tannin, a hallmark of great Stags Leap Cabernet.
