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.

Wow. Classic Napa. Flowers in the nose. Oak and cherry on the palate. Had a magnum with friends.

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 😜 )
