Stag S Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is unquestionably one of the icons of the Napa Valley. While it is currently fashionable to point the finger at California for a style of wine that is considered too packed with fruit, concentration, and alcohol, this could not be less true of this estate which from its beginnings has persisted with a style that is summed up by the word “classical”, where ripe fruit and perfume are paired with elegance and structure. Alluring aromas of cocoa powder and black cherry evolve alongside pretty floral tones and a hint of smoke. A sweet, rich perfume of Bing cherry, blackberry, cassis, and rhubarb leads to savoury aromas of licorice, cedar, truffles and toasted almonds. Similar flavours coat the palate with additional notes of cocoa powder and vanilla. The wine is generous in character and framed by silky, smooth tannins. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24 months in 100% French oak.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars:
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Of all the wines I have shared with my boss, this is the first he has ever commented on. He is much more knowledgable than I am about wines. I know what I like, he knows what is really good! :-) At any rate, it was very easy to drink and was great with the NY Strip I had for dinner.

loads of christmas spices, currants, hot apple cider and cinnamon on the nose combined with blackberry fruit. Palate offers to a concentration of dark fruits, wonderful complexity of enriching flavors. Med+ tannins with a balanced acidity. There is a spice at the finish with cinnamon and cocoa notes

At first glance, a big glass of black cherries and vanilla with a little smoke underneath. Aromas of dark berry fruit, cocoa and a dustiness. Palate offers a smokiness, old leather mixed with dark berries and chocolate, some coffee notes add to the complexity of the wine as well. This is considered the winery's house cabernet.

This is a leaner version of classic Napa cab. This is very refined and is a joy to drink. Tasted at Geneva tasting 4/18/2010

a very smooth, pleasant cabernet. not as big and bold as i like my reds, but certainly an elegant, balanced affair, worthy of long, slow languid enjoyment.

Goes nicely with steak and mushrooms. Will age 5 or more years and develop further complexity.

Paired this one with a huge porterhouse cooked rare/med. Match made in heaven. Nice and full bodied, deep colored with a lengthy finish. I knew it would pack somewhat of a punch, but surprisingly easy tannins for a Napa cab and a good amount of dark fruit. Would recommend if you don't mind spending $40 a bottle.

A perennial favorite on restaurant wine lists, Artemis is generous in flavor and velvety in texture. Aromas of cassis and caramel rise and give way to earthy notes of black olive, black pepper, and truffles. Classic flavors of cassis and black cherry fill the mouth as notes of violets and vanilla linger on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes - The Leap Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon opens with complex aromas of cinnamon, leather and cassis. The structure is dense and compact with harmonious layers of red fruit and ripe, dark plum. Aged for 24 months in barrels, fully resolved and mature tannins carry through to a long finish of brambles, coffee and cocoa powder.

Winemaker's notes: A complex series of aromas unfold in the glass, from warm berries and concentrated cassis, to chocolate fudge, violets, and barrel spices. The deep, dark fruit and chocolate flavors are surrounded by a velvety texture and fine tannins that linger on the palate.

Good full red-ruby. Aromas of roasted currant, chocolate mint and sexy oak. Juicy, pliant and broad, with nicely ripe flavors of red currant. raspberry, bitter chocolate and mint. Finishes with ripe tannins, a kiss of spicy oak and very good length.
