Winemaker Notes

The 2015 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon has generous aromas of cocoa powder, black tea, chocolate fudge and currants. The wine has a rich entry with robust flavors of black fruit and spice along with dusty tannins. The structured tannins, rich fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine's ability to age.

Barbecued Tri-tip, mustard-rubbed pork loin, parmesan and black pepper pasta (Cacio e Pepe), or crispy gnocchi with brown butter and sage.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon S. L. V. offers up aromas of pepper, spice box, lavender and potpourri with mulberries, black cherries and black berries at the core, plus plum preserves and bay leaves hints. Medium to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the palate is firm and earthy with a long, minerally finish.
Range: 93-95
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Juicy and vibrant in feel, featuring a mix of blueberry, raspberry and red currant fruit flavors that play well with the light graphite, bergamot and floral nuances. The solid backdrop of roasted apple wood is well-integrated. Nicely put together, with acidity as much as tannins supporting the finish.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Plump, earthy and rich, this is a generous vintage from the rocky soils that have washed down the hill above S.L.V. Oak plays a major role in the scents and the tannins at this stage in the wine’s development, but a firm presence of earthy, cherry-scented fruit rises up through the smokiness and leaves a clean sense of ripeness. This should be at its prime ten years from the vintage.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is an estate-grown, 100% varietal wine that showcases a soft, broad experience that's approachably rich and well-balanced. Perfumed in cherry, cassis and vanilla, it has a subtle, savory character on the midpalate of dense smoky oak and firm structure.

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.  Learn about Stags Leap history and estate-grown wines.


History of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was founded in 1970 with the purchase of a 40 acre property in the now famed Stag’s Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris."


Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Estate-Grown Cabernet Sauvignon

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 Cabernet wines are fashioned to express richness balanced by elegant restraint, an approach often described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove."

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
