Flaunting an opaque ruby hue in the glass, this wine offers a lush bouquet of ripe red cherry, red raspberry and plum aromas that dance beneath layers of cinnamon sugar, sweet sage and licorice. The entry is plush and silky, filling the mouth with flavors of cherry preserves, red currant and ripe blackberry fruits that lead into hints of vanilla toast, crème brûlée and lavender soda on the impeccably structured, lingering finish, supported by fine, velvety tannins. This exquisitely refined bottling of our Stags Leap District Cabernet would make an excellent accompaniment to robust meal, such as a roasted rack of New Zealand lamb or grilled hanger steak with mushroom risotto. Additionally, it would pair beautifully with Zamorano, an aged sheep's milk cheese from Spain.

Wine EnthusiastFrom a steep, densely planted estate vineyard, this is a lilting regional example of well-integrated oak in support of black raspberry, licorice and chalky clove. Silky tannins mark it most, providing a balance to the fruit and a pronounced, entirely delectable bite of black pepper on the finish.
