Proprietors Reserve Stags Canyon Ranch Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

2016 is a more refined version of its 2015 sibling. Still lots of blueberry and bacon fat on and Indian spice notes, but in a presentation that is more settle than previous but still sticks out and is profound. Softer tannins, silkier texture. Fantastic. — a month ago

Yes. Inexcusable offense of drinking a baby of this magnitude. Now that we’re past that. Every year I drink a bottle of this allocation right away with differing results. The 2016 is INCREDIBLE now! The fruit is accessible, there is tremendous balance, it is mouth coating, the tannins are great throughout, and it goes on forever.
I decanted for 4 hours and sampled pop and pour then about hourly. I did not share with anyone. Don’t tell Melanie when you meet her 😉
Color is inky garnet/purple.
Nose is white flower, blueberry, stone/pencil, and licorice.
In the mouth is blueberry, black raspberry, chocolate, sweet vanilla, and finishes with a touch of pepper (first and second hour more woody oak/cedar). This is amazing. I’m sure it’ll be a 100 someday. 5 bottles left, can I wait that long?
Also wine # 500!

Hey @Deborah M! I did 102 miles on Saturday! That helped me justify this. Just go do a century, no guilt! 😂

@Paul K that’s awesome! I have a century planned in 3 weeks. I will borrow your reasoning.

What a difference 4 months make (or bottle variation)! This bottle is much more integrated with baking spice, figs, strawberry jam, but a wonderful earthy and almost tobacco like component. Really well balanced. — 11 days ago

Very good now that it’s got some bottle age on it. Fruit is chilling out with some meaty funk coming in. Smooth tannins. Still several years to go. — 4 days ago
