Stags' Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a fresh, juicy wine with well-delineated blueberry and blackberry flavors buoyed by fresh herbs and a touch of spice. The oak is seamlessly integrated, showcasing rather than masking the fruit, and the tannins are reactive without being aggressive. Long on fruit, this is a coherent, focused and bright Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." -Winery

A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags’ Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s. Stags Leap Manor, as it was called in the 1920s, was known as one of the prominent country retreats in the Napa Valley at a time when resort and spa business was big. In addition to lodging and dining, amenities included lawn tennis, swimming, horseback riding, children’s activities, golf, music, cards, a library, and Napa Valley wines and liquors (prior to and after Prohibition).

This is a great wine for the price point. Good, smooth finish and ready now. Decanted was even better. I just ordered another case.

Bright red fruit aromas, cherry cola and brown sugar aromas. The palate is much more austere, leading with strong oak, strong tannins, and leathery texture.

Inky black licorice nose with currants. The mouth has a tart raspberry quality, nice balance between fruit and tannins, and a kind of citric butteriness on the finish. A full-bodied wine with some nice qualities.

The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the elegant success that resulted from the cooler 2011 vintage. Black currant, cherry and blueberry aromatics remain distinctly bright in this inviting wine. The palate offers a layered complexity of forest floor, savory herbs, and sweet tobacco that seamlessly blends with the vibrant red fruit. Persistent tannins frame a round, full structure and soft, fresh finish. - Winery
