Stag's Leap Wine Cellars SLV Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
from Napa Valley, California
Planted by the Warren Winiarski family in 1970, S.L.V. achieved
international fame when three year old vines from the 1973 harvest
produced a wine that shocked the wine world by triumphing over
some of France's greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the
"Judgment of Paris". Today, this history-making vineyard continues to
yield wines of multi-layered complexity, structure, and spicy intensity.
In its youth, this wine rewards those who let it sit in the glass and
open up before discovering its generous character. At first, it presents
dark fruit and floral aromas, then an earthy hint of rosemary and
black truffle. Similar flavors unfold, including dark cherry, blueberry
and plum that join with cocoa powder and spiced vanilla. This mouthfilling
wine builds in richness and density through its long, smooth
finish. Try it with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game, or a
wild mushroom tart.
