It's clean thankfully (unlike the last Stags' Leap I had). But there's not the level of complexity one would expect from a bottle of this price with such pedigree.

Solid Napa cab, very gripping tannins, lots of black fruit.

Velvety and elegant with aromatics of blueberry, cedar, graphite, and vanilla. Smooth, well integrated oak that adds a nice round texture with deep, juicy red currants, leather and spice. Effortless, beautiful Napa cab.

Dusty, cherry, olive tapenade, sawdust, prune and toast. Very tannic, woody, spice and caramel. Very young, needs time.

Bought this three years ago, rated it 9.1, and thought it was overpriced. Turns out—it’s great now! Maybe it just needed to age or 2012 was a good year ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I’m impressed. Great tannins and a very strong flavor imma call—grape, that demands to be paired with food.
