Nice to taste a Stag's Leap wine from when I was helping with the vineyards. 13.5 ABV from a current Napa cab house! Pretty much the end of an era even with them, now that Warren Winiarski is no longer the guiding force. Hope I'm wrong. A bit closed at first, delicious on day two.

This was poured through a Zazzol aerator and just spilled out Cassis, black olive, cigar box and vanilla/brown sugar from the glass. Should she well for another 8-10 years. Delicious!

Put this on the shelf for a few years. Great dark berry and cherry but enough tannin to ripe your face off! Splash decant if drinking young!

Likely the best Artemis Stag's Leap has ever made. Ripe blackberries, boysenberries, black plum, cinnamon, dark chocolate, vanilla toasted oak and caramel finish. It's not as fresh as we've had at the winery. Starting to close down in the bottle. This entry level Stag's Leap is better at this young stage than most of their 2011's. At $40, an extreme value. Can't wait to try it again in 8-10 years!

Nice cab. Needs an hour to open up. Just a night alone with me and my wine. :-)
