WINE PROFILE

TASTING NOTES

The intense color of this wine provides a preview to the complex and intense aromas of red berry fruit, mocha-chocolate and herb-garden sage. Fresh blueberry and blackberry flavors are accentuated by a vibrant acidity and balanced with creamy oak.

VINEYARD NOTES

This was a classic, nearly-textbook growing season of warm, sunny days and cool, foggy nights punctuated by a couple of brief heat blasts - the perfect recipe for long, flavor-building hangtime and ideal sugar to acid balance. October rains gave winemakers a little concern but this Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on September 18 and was safely in the fermentor when the rains appeared. The vintage will be remembered for low yields of small, flavorful berries and excellent flavor maturity.
