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.

The color of the wine is a deep, opaque purple at the center, transitioning to a bright garnet around the edges. The nose is a subdued combination of blackberry, anise, dark chocolate and a touch of oak. The taste is complex and brooding, with just a hint of dark fruit at the outset, transitioning into some pepper and spice and a bit of limestone midpalate. The finish is exceptionally dry, supported by some nice structure in the tannins making it last a good 30 seconds. It's just surprising how dry this wine is, so often today Cabernet Sauvignons are jammy fruitbombs, but this one is subtle, quite reminiscent of the exceedingly dry Bordeaux I've enjoyed in Paris nearly two decades ago.

The 2007 S.L.V. has the dark fruit tones (blackberry, black plum) that typically come from the vineyard, as well as notes of cassis, bramble, Chinese five-spice, caramel and vanilla. There is an elegant mineral quality on the nose and lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes - Our red wines from 2007 are remarkably fruit-forward and accessible in their youth, yet remain true to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars house style: refined, elegant and suggesting a long life in the cellar. The 2007 S.L.V. has the dark fruit tones (blackberry, black plum) that typically come from the vineyard, as well as notes of cassis, bramble, Chinese five-spice, caramel and vanilla. There is an elegant mineral quality on the nose and lingering finish. The tannins can be described as being like raw silk: slightly nubby, yet still smooth. Serve S.L.V. with filet mignon or, for non-carnivores, an earthy wild-mushroom risotto.
