Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Another good showing from the mid-90’s from @Eric LaMasters more bold, tannic and chewy than the Insignia or Mondavi. Fruit is muddled a bit and more blue/black than red. Again a very very good wine and showing exceptionally at almost 25. Lacks a little finesse. — 6 days ago

I’ve had better bottles of this vintage. This one didn’t live up to what I’ve experienced on a couple of other recent occasions.

One Point Five Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Decanted for a good 2hrs and that helped smooth things out. Powerful and brooding with just a touch of heat. May want to revision 5yrs to see if it’s become better integrated. Fun components, just not all in full harmony just yet. — 13 days ago

All the elements were there, but the acidity was much lower than expected. Makes me wonder about the long haul for this vintage. — 9 days ago

Wow! What a beast! At 12 years, still a monster. The tannins are a bit more mellow but this stood up to the spice rubbed steak and kicked it in the face! Awesome! — 6 days ago
