Lot 287 has a dense purple hue and possesses lovely aromas of blackberries, violets, and scorched Earth, rich and ripe. Cassis and blackberries are lively across the palate backed by espresso bean and the Stags Leap signature scorched Earth and ultra-fine tannin structure. There is a real chewiness to this wine and a long finish as well.

Style: Full, Bold

Cam Confidential
Lot 287 2007 (Stag's Leap) Cabernet is actually appellated Napa Valley as the blend is 77% Stags Leap District, 13% Oakville, and 10% Rutherford simply because we thought the final blend was superior to an 85% Stags Leap blend (which is where it would need to be to qualify for the appellation). This wine is every bit as good as Lot 189 - if you like the richer profile Napa Cab’s you’ll probably think this one is better - and comes from the same producer. They obviously really hesitated to part with it which is why we are just now bringing it to market for you. At $20 this wine is an absolute steal and certainly gives Lot 229 a run for its money as Value Wine of the Year.
