Regusci Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2009
Headily lush on the nose with deep black fruit--think cherry and blackberry--balanced with sweet floral notes, shavings of chocolate and subtle minerality. The palate delights in rich, ripe, fat, rounded and juicy black and red currant fruit, smoky spices and softly tart tannins. A finish that unfolds into deepening layers of black current and engaging casis, reminds us why we make wine. Pull the cork now or wait 8-10 years if you can!
Pretty big nose--I get oak and blackberry. Great initial mouth feel. Some berry flavor, nice acid. Tannin kinda sneaks up on you. At first you get the fruit and you're thinking no tannin at all. Then from mid-palate back it kinda crescendos--not overwhelming, but, pop, there it is. US$39.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana.
Stopped in at Regusci based on a Sommelier reccomendation. We were not disappointed at all. This 2007 cabernet sauvignon is drinking well now, but could sit for a couple more years. Lots of tobacco, charred wood, forest floor and some cassis. Starts out with the tobacco and smoke flavors hitting the palate. Some mushrooms, forest floor come through in the middle. Finishes with a slight smokey flavor. Could use a tad more body, but it was nicely balanced. Perfect with some grilled red meat.
received a bottle of the 2007 stagleaps district cab for christmas from two of my assistant managers and absolutely love it.................wonderful bouquet of fruit and flowers............beautiful dark rich garnet color.........tastes superb..........................reminds me of a cakebread cab that costs about twice as much................i highly recommend the 2007 stagleaps district cab...........soft tannins but loaded with character..............long lingering flavor on the palet.
Tried this wine at the winery August,2009. Has all the Stag's Leap characteristics of smooth tannins and rich, black, ripe fruit. This winery is on the Silverado trail between Chimney Rock and Stag's Leap Wineries. The best part is, this wine sells for half of what it's neighbor's wines sell for on average. A real bargain from a premium wine district.
Big stag's leap footprint. Huge nose filled with bright, ripe, berries... Powerful on the palate, with a long very slightly spicy finish. This was a great suprise.
