Winemaker's Notes:

Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cedar and forest floor get a boost of complexity from hints of rosemary, gentle fresh herbs, baking spice and vanilla caramel. The wine is deep, dark and intense, yet also signature Stag's Leap Wine Cellars: medium-full-bodied, firmly structured, powerful yet elegant, and with a long, succulent finish. Enjoy it with steak au poivre or grilled duck breast with braised escarole.

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."

Winemaker's Notes:

Cuvaison's Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the winery's Estate owned vineyard, some 1,200 feet up the slopes of Napa Valley's Mt. Veeder. Th e schisty, gravelly, well-drained hillside soils severely restrict the yields, producing Lilliputian quantities of solid, jam-packed Cabernet backed by vibrant acidity and fine, mountain tannins.

Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, violets and mocha. The palate has floral and black fruit notes dominate with rich, jammy fruit. Overall, a big, full throated Cabernet Sauvignon with inky fruit and chewy, supple tannins.
