I think I rated this a tad lower from the WS Grand Tour tasting or whenever I had it before. This time I found it to be a very enjoyable wine. Deep, rich and complex. -Tasted at The Hostile Grape 8/5/09

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry (925 cases of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) is the richest of these wines. Superbly deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of blackberry, cassis, licorice, subtle smoke, and incense, this opulent wine has a plush palate, silky tannins, impressive purity, stature, and length. However, the tannins are there and the wine still tastes primary despite its enormous potential. Give it 3ndash;4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.

The quintessential expression of an elegant Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry (86% Cabernet Sauvignon) combines elegance with power. Layered and full-bodied with an ethereal lightness as well as touches of oak and tannin, it is gorgeously pure and textured yet strikingly long and intense. Bursting with flavor, but neither heavy nor cloying, give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and enjoy it over the next 25+ years.

Smooth, rich and fleshy, this is elegant and stylish, with savory herb, current and blackberry fruit thatrsquo;s intense, concentrated, focused and persistent. Needs time. Best from 2011 through 2018.

Smells a bit reduced, but this is quite rich and expressive on the palate. Firm, intense and full-bodied, with layers of cedar, dried currant, mineral, tobacco and espresso, letting the flavors build on the finish, where the tannins are chewy. Drink now through 2020.

Bright, deep ruby-red. Super-ripe aromas of currant, earth and smoky oak, lifted by a floral nuance. Round, seamless and broad without any heaviness; this really spreads out to coat the palate and fill the mouth. A suave wine with a nicely restrained sweetness to its blackberry-dominated flavors. The very smooth finish shows lovely aromatic persistence.
