RATINGS

92Robert M. Parker Jr.

... Loads of black cherry, black currant, licorice, and spring flowers are present in this mid-weight, elegant, stylish wine, which offers up sweet tannin in a nice framework, with a well-balanced mouthfeel.

92Wine Spectator

Exhibits complex layers of ripe cherry, blackberry and currant, with touches of mocha-laced oak that are woven together nicely. Full-bodied, firming midpalate and ending with a long, persistent finish.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, blueberry, mint and minerals. Silky on entry, then tighter but still pliant in the middle, with the black and blue fruit and mint flavors carrying through....

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District

Stags Leap District AVA in southern Napa Valley has a storied history. It is home to Stag’s Leap Cellars, whose 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon won the famous Judgment of Paris blind tasting that included several of Bordeaux’s most exalted First Growths. Vineyards were started in area in the late 19th century, but the district’s rise in prestige started in the late 1960s when Nathan Fay planted Cabernet Sauvignon. Fay later sold his estate to Warren Winiarski, founder of Stag’s Leap Cellars. The district was given its own AVA designation in 1989, and today there are 1,400 vineyard acres. The AVA is especially notable because it was the first in the U.S. to be granted AVA status based on terroir. Its distinctive soils is a mix of volcanic soils, river sediment and loamy clay-like soil. Because the soils don’t retain water well, vineyards in Stag’s Leap tend to grow fruit with great intensity and flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 95% of the grapes planted in Stags Leap.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
