Winemaker Notes

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator

A potent expression of Cabernet, dense, rich and layered, with tiers of mocha, dark berry, cedar, black licorice and crushed rock, tightening on the finish. Cellaring is mandatory.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Made by Dave Phinney, this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an elegant style, which is surprising given the fact that it is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Aged 18 months in 50% new oak, it offers lots of jammy red and black currant notes intermixed with notions of smoke, lead pencil shavings, baking spices and Christmas fruitcake. Deep and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin and a long finish, this impressive 2010 should age nicely for 15 or more years.

Stags Leap Wine

Napa Valley, California

Legend has it that quick and nimble stags would escape the indigenous hunters of southern Napa Valley through the landmark palisades that sit just northeast of the current city of Napa. As a result, the area was given the name, Stags Leap. While its grape-growing history dates back to the mid-1800s, winemaking didn’t really take off until the mid-1970s after a small but pivotal blind tasting called the Judgement of Paris.

When a 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won first place against its high-profile Bordeaux contenders, like Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, international attention to the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley escalated rapidly.

The vineyards in this one-of-a-kind wine growing region receive hot afternoon air reflecting off of its eastern palisade formation. In combination with the cool evening breezes from the San Pablo Bay just south, this becomes an optimal environment for grape growing. While many varieties could thrive here, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate with virtually no others, save for a spot or two of Syrah.

Stags Leap soils—eroded volcanic and old river sediments—encourage well established root systems and result in complex, terroir-driven wines. Stags Leap District reds have a distinct sour cherry and black berry character with baking spice and dried earth aromas, and supple tannins.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
