Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 5% Rhone varieties aged in 37% new French oak for 20 months. Deep purple-black in color, it opens with crushed blueberries, black cherries and cassis with touches of yeast extract, beef dripping, bay leaves and cedar with a waft of lilacs. Medium-bodied and wonderfully elegant in the mouth, the palate reveals fantastic energy with a firm, grainy frame and long, mineral-laced finish. Drink 2018-2034.
Wine Tasting Notes
On the nose, the Stags' Leap Napa Valley CABERNET SAUVIGNON layers black fruit notes with aromas of cola, clove, coffee and black pepper. Taste it, and the flavors of blackberry, black cherry, anise, black tea and dark chocolate are revealed. Full bodied with an integrated tannin structure, this CABERNET SAUVIGNON offers hints of mineral which enhance the complex fruit through a long finish.
