Winemaker's Notes

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (99% Cabernet and 1% Petit Verdot) is a meatier, more structured wine, but slightly deeper than the 2004, with broad black currant fruit flavors intermixed with some spice box, crushed rock, and spring flowers. It is characteristic of Stags Leap in its elegance and finesse. The wine has good acidity and freshness, but is long and seamless. Drink it over the next 12-15 years." - The Wine Advocate

This sends out a full, spicy aroma on the pour, with a deep rich nose the moment you pick up your glass. I found it to have wonderful complex flavors that were deeply fruity with more than a hint of spice. The finish is cool, long, fresh, lasting well. As I've said in past reviews, I'm usually in love with Barossa Valley wines - far more than the Californians. This wine turns my head and could easily change my mind! I very seldom give out five star ratings - this one is a FULL five stars!

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
