Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon offers ripe black cherry and blueberry aromas with hints of cedar and spice. A powerful entry leads to a rich and full palate of black currant and red fruit with anise and cocoa top notes. The wine's structured tannins, concentrated fruit core and pleasing minerality point to this wine's ability to age. Enjoy with grilled peppered tri-tip or a hearty wild mushroom risotto.

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."
