Duckhorn Stout Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Sharing a dense purple color, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Stout Vineyard exhibits notes of crushed rocks, blueberries, black raspberries and cassis. This young, promising 2001 is nearly as youthful as the Monitor Ledge cuvee, but slightly more concentrated. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for 20-25 years.
More tannic than Duckhorn's Monitor Ledge, with more darkly skinned fruit flavors and chocolate. Perfectly balanced in flamboyant new oak and acids, rich and supple, long in the finish.
One of the first wineries to pioneer Merlot as a premium varietal, Duckhorn Vineyards now makes several elegant Merlot and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings to showcase the characteristics of its vineyard sites. In addition, the winery is known for its acclaimed Sauvignon Blanc. Beginning with the 2006 vintage, Duckhorn Vineyards unveiled The Discussion, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend that represents the pinnacle of Duckhorn's portfolio.
