Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of honeysuckle and toasted almond embroider a luscious bouquet of vine-ripened melon. Intriguing suggestions of white fig and lemongrass create multidimensional palate interest. A fresh finish lingers through oaky nuances. Try with crab cakes served with a spicy aioli or grilled sea bass served with a fig tapenade.

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."
