A ripe yet savoury and elegant effort. It is rich with lots of depth. Flavours od cherry, coffee and chocolate are underpinned by ripe tannins and good acidity.
A Napa Valley ‘first-growth’ estate, producing world-renowned Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional beauty and long life. The story of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is now legendary: Founded in 1970, the winery was thrust into the spotlight when a bottle of the 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stag’s Leap Vineyard won the now-famous 1976 Paris Tasting, beating some of France’s greatest wines.
