Wine Details

This classic Stags Leap District Cabernet shows blackberry, crushed plum, Tellicherry peppercorn and cassis with loads of dark chocolate, pencil lead and a profound minerality suggestive of great Bordeaux (this estate was founded shortly after the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris tasting with an eye to competing with the best of Bordeaux). Silky texture and black fruit essence play out on a foundation of fine-grained tannins.

Deep ruddy magenta, opaque from within about a half inch of the edge of the glass. Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows classic, subtle and structured Napa cabernet sauvignon, with fruit, oak and depth. The primary elements on the palate are solid and bright fruit on the mid-palate, think ripe blackberry, with surrounding tannins and oak. A clean, yet lengthy, finish then follows, with clear evidence that even more time will not harm this solid offering.

I was so pleased when I received your email that this wonderful wine that sold out several years ago was suddenly available again. I don't know where it had been hiding but I promptly ordered two cases.

Smooth, complex, pure Stag's Leap and a great value. Any questions?

This was a great wine when it was released. I still have about 8 bottles in my cellar. Opened one last night. OMG! Two words, smooth, superb. Letting a great wine develop is defiantly worth the wait.
