#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish brick rim.

Great nose of blueberries, black plums, currants, tobacco, spices, balsamic, vinaigrette, cola, cedar, licorice coffee, cinnamon, light alcohol and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, sweet cherries, blueberries, dried fruits, cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, vinaigrette, tobacco, herbs, coffee, cola, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap District in Napa Valley. Well balanced with great complexity and a gentle mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour).

Thank you Michael for sharing this with me.

This 15 year old, still has 10 years in it, but so delicious now. Spicy and tasty. Rich and smooth.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$100 (current vintage).

This is a good Stag’s Leap Cabernet, 75% cab 25% merlot. It is a quality wine but it seems to be a little closed off. Even after an hour in the decanter. The oak comes thru predominantly on the nose. Black fruit and licorice on the palate. Not worth the price in my honest opinion. You can drink wines that are half the price and taste way better and are a better example of Cabernet Sauvignon. If you have this in your cellar, keep it until 2026.

A dense ruby red. Explosive black and red fruit. A classic Napa cab, with a full mouth finish. Tobacco, nights of mint, nutmeg.

Deep ruby. Big cab nose. Distinguished musty mint and forest floor. Explosive black cherry, dates, with mellow tannins. Rivers of goodness, with a nice lingering finish.

Solid. Hit and miss with this winery. I've liked it 2/3 times I've tried it. This 2007 vintage is a good one.

Primarily black cherry, plum with mild menthol tobacco leaf in a cedar box. Mold structure with a better finish.

Amazing, lots of black fruit with a smooth finish. Classic Napa Cabernet that will only get better with age. This is well worth it

Garnet/black center. Nose of cocoa and truffles. A weighty wine that moves around the palate with determination, with flavors of dark cherry, plum, and clove
