Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish.
JS 92
James Suckling
Very attractive dark-plum and blackcurrant aromas with nicely integrated, toasty oak and leafy notes that lead to a palate with a rich, round and very fresh feel to the coffee-laced finish. Drink or hold.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This is a rock-solid offering, featuring dark currant and mulled raspberry fruit, laced with light savory and tobacco notes. Ends with a focused mix of fruit and cedar on the pleasantly grippy finish. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a beautiful, classic wine that does everything right. Black cherries, blackberries, licorice, scorched earth, and graphite notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Cabernet that shows the classic, straight style of the vintage nicely. It has solid structure and will put on weight with short-term cellaring, and should have 10-15 years of prime drinking.

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, Malbec and 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.
