|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
Graphite, flint and toasted oak accent a core of brawny, concentrated black fruit in this estate red. Clove, black currant, cigar box and firm, structured tannins contribute to the classic nature of this well-made wine. Enjoy 2026-2031.
Features a well-focused beam of red and black currant coulis running through, laced with light savory, anise and singed cedar notes. Everything pulls together through the finish, showing a sense of finesse to match the power. Drink now through 2035. 2,550 cases made.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. captures all the darkness and mineral-infused intensity that is so typical of this historic vineyard. Black cherry, lavender, plum, violet, spice and menthol all fill out the wine's creamy yet mid-weight frame. Deep and plush, but never heavy, the 2016 has a lot to recommend it.
