Winemaker Notes

A brambly aroma is laced generously with full ripe berry perfume. Ripe blackberry flavors are concentrated with gripping tannins that evolve on wings of vanilla. Fruit flavors echo gently on the palate. Pair this wine with roast pork tenderloin served in a dried cherry beef reduction or grilled portobello atop polenta seasoned with stilton.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
For this winery's "basic" Cabernet, it shines brightly. Dark red berries get just the right spice and licorice accents. Rich raspberry fruit is balanced by chocolate, espresso bean and some smoke. Finishes toasty, with just the slightest streak of mint.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Firm, rich and concentrated Cabernet, with elegant coffee, cedar, currant and leather flavors that are neat and trim. Finished withhints of mocha and cedar. Cellar.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley, California
1997 Cabernet Sauvignon
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."

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
