Big & Bold
I did let this decant for several hours before tasting it. And, as another reviewer said, this can be put in the cellar for years and it will only get better. However, this wine is more than drinkable today. This is not the first Stag's Leap Cab vintage that I have tried. Frankly, I am a fan of this winery. The Stag's Leap 2007 Cab trumps other wines in this price range and many that are more expensive. It has DARK fruit tastes, bold rich flavor, and a slightly earthy experience. The bouquet is wonderful and fills your head like the aroma of baking bread, enticing you sample its subtle complexities. Your mouth waters. It dissipates on the palate like a snowflake slowly melting on a windowsill;lingering just long enough. This wine is a masterpiece to be enjoyed and savored. PS. 2008 was almost as good...give it another year.
