Food Pairings for Stag's Leap S.L.V. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
