Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of warm black fruit, cedar, chocolate, and dried herbs, followed by rich, juicy flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate, and tobacco, with a nice long finish. The tannins are ripe and supple.

"There are approximately 9,000 cases of the Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five Stags Leap. The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 offers delicious red currant and black cherry fruit interwoven with notions of loamy soil and spring flowers. It is an elegant, stylish effort to enjoy over the next 10-15 years." 89 Points

I tried this wine for the frist time a few weeks ago at a very good restaurant in Ithaca NY. I was unable to decide between two wines on the list and after asking the sommelier he said "no contest....the One Point Five." I was very glad I did. This is a beautiful wine; delicious cherry, cassis and other dark fruits. After opening the One Point Five's earth tones, new leather and smoke start to show through. Don't know how well this wine will cellar as it is drinking so well at this young age. Very accessable, beautiful grape. I immediately went out and bought a case of this stuff. Never had the Hillside Select but that is now high up on my list as a "must try someday". This is one of those times when I am am glad I did not go with the critics as WE rates this wine an 89. Try it and judge it for yourself.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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...

(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,...
