    Winemaker Notes

    CASK 23, made only in exceptional vintages, is usually a blend of the most distinctive fruit from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' S.L.V. and FAY estate vineyards. But now, thirty years after a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from S.L.V. won the legendary Paris tasting, they return to this vineyard as the sole source of inspiration for the 2003 blend.

    The 2003 CASK 23 is a wine of rich flavors and luscious, supple tannins. It opens with welcoming aromas of savory spices that marry with floral notes and sweet dark fruit. These aromas evolve into warm scents of vanilla, espresso, and truffle with more time in the glass. This beautiful array is echoed on the palate with deep flavors of dark berries, cherries, and plums that combine with chocolate, espresso, and spicy notes. The wine's complexity continues to unfold throughout a long, persistent finish.

    Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley, California
    2003 Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon (half-bottle)
    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.
