Winemaker's Notes:

An ebullient bouquet of blackberry and plum unfurls on tendrils of leather and peppered tobacco. This wines boldness continues in a burst of black cherry in the mouth, gaining immediate balance from restrained tannins that carry the fruit gently through a velvety finish. Try with boeuf Bourguignon or goat cheese and grilled vegetable pizza.

About Stag's Leap Wine Cellars:

Considered one of the "first growths" of Napa Valley, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars produces renowned Cabernet Sauvignon from its historic Stags Leap District estate vineyards. Founded in 1970, the winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley when the 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the now famout 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris." Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' three estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons - CASK 23, S.L.V. and Fay - are among the most highly regarded and collected Cabernet Sauvignons worldwide. The wines are fashioned to express richness balanced by elegant restraint, an approach often described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove."
