Cam Confidential
Lot 323 2009 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the same vineyard and winery source as Lot 189 2008 Stags Leap Cabernet, though we got considerably less wine this vintage than last (where I think we actually bought the entire production). There are only 600 cases so you'll want to move fast. Overall this is a more elegant style of Cabernet with pretty fruit and a finesse-driven structure. Lot 323 is just a baby now having only gone into the bottle less than three months ago. So if you venture to open a bottle now, I highly recommend the 24 hour decant we have outlined many times (Decant the wine for an hour and then funnel it back into the bottle and replace the cork. Let sit overnight and enjoy the following evening).
