92 points, Wine SpectatorThe grapes for the Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from a single vineyard east of Silverado Trail and just South of Stags Leap winery. Due to the way this vineyard is planted, we harvest the morning side and the afternoon side of the vines separately so as to bring in each berry at the peak of ripeness. Intense fruit flavors and complex tannins best characterize wines from this vineyard.A deep garnet purple in color, vibrant aromas of red currants, mulberries and fresh black cherries spring from the glass. Crushed black currants, lavender and tapenade flavors are layered with blueberry and blackberry notes. This is a full-bodied wine with bold and seamless tannins. The finish is long with loads of freshness.
