94 points, Jeb Dunnuck92 points, Wine Spectator92 points, VinousThe 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 rich garnet purple in color, fresh and bright aromas of red currants, cranberry and ripe black cherries leap from the glass. Crushed black pepper, lavender and mushroom flavors are layered with blackberry and blueberry notes. This is a strong, full-bodied wine with bold and seamless tannins. The finish bright, complex and lingering.
