A vibrant nose of plum, cassis, nutmeg, black licorice and hints of rosemary greets the taster, with additional layers of raspberry, tealeaf, rose petals and vanilla. Concentrated fl avors of black cherry, plum, cassis, baked cherry pie, cocoa, toast, and allspice intermingle with dusty tannins, hints of white pepper and tobacco. Perfectly balanced and fi rmly structured, this wine has signifi cant aging potential and is ready to enjoy now with an herb-stuffed turkey accompanied by a velvety chestnut soup.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is a private Napa Valley estate that has been owned by my family since they established the winery in 1972 in what is now known as the Stags Leap District. They are best known for their three estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons, CASK 23, S.L.V. and FAY, which are among the most highly regarded Cabernets in the world. They use the "Golden Rectangle" approach to winemaking, balancing opposing elements to create wines that are both dynamic and harmonious, and embody the classical ideals that define the world's greatest wines.
