Cliff Lede Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc) is everything that one expects in a wine from this sector that is known for elegance, harmony, and Margaux-like finesse. A perfectly balanced Cabernet, it exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of spring flowers, black and red currants as well as graphite. It is deep, rich, young, and promising with plenty of tannin, but an unmistakable, profound minerality. Although accessible, 2-3 years of bottle age will be beneficial, and the wine should age for two decades. Good full ruby-red. Cassis, minerals, mocha, brown spices and a hint of nutty oak on the rather reticent nose. Then supple, rich and sweet, with a lush texture and insidious intensity to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. The suave finish features fine-grained tannins and nice lift. ** Only 9 in Stock **
