From a restaurant list. Red garnet, mature looking and great color. Nice old cab nose with notes of black cherries, plums, herbs, earth, some cedar wood and worn saddle leather. Great texture in the mouth. Balanced with resolved tannins; the structure matches the fruit very nicely. Lasting finish. Very nice. Drink now or hold... this has many years of fun ahead of it.

Excellent Cab with both old and new world nuances. Strong blueberry and black fruit but a refined finish. Complex and delicious. WBA

I have yet to have a Stag's Leap cabernet I didn't enjoy. This was no exception. This lacks the complexity of the Cask 23 or the SLV. However it's in a good place now, but unlikely to get better. The nose is still quite pronounced, but the tannins have softened and there's just enough fruit left to balance things.

Third bottle tonight with cheese, smoke ribs and strawberry shortcake. Tart cherry and cranberry with some herbal notes (can't quite discern the notes due to an impaired olfactory sense 😜 )
