Classic structure and lively mineral flavors are complemented by cassis, cherries, blackberries and sage additions. Built to age, but already accessible, this will add more complexity in another few years.

One of my favourite 100% Cabs from Stags Leap @ £80 (now £180+) - drinking perfectly now 👍

🍷 Opaque touch garnet ruby

👃 Elegant smokey herb infused spiced dark berries w/ soft oak, cocoa vanilla mint, light prune & red cherry

👄 Med body of rich silky creamy cocoa infused blackcurrant w/ cherry & plum in the mix - tannins nicely integrated now

🎯 Long dark fruit w/ twist of bitter cocoa coffee & liquorice

A fine Stag's Leap wine. From Napa's first appellation. Minerality, flint, slate very interesting

This one benefits greatly by aeration and letting it breathe. It reminds me of a bold Zinfandel. Strong fruit beginning with a slight peppery finish. A great way to finish preparing Thanksgiving dunner.

Typical Napa Cab--fruit forward, tannic and good with steak but not as nuanced as red Bordeaux
