Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon S.l.v. Napa Valley Estate California Napa County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points from the Connoisseurs Guide to California Wine: Leading with a complex mix of cassis coffee sweet leather and a hint of forestfloor spice in the nose this intriguing wine runs true to expectations on the palate with layered equally complex Cabernet flavors Its initial impressions of supple plushness are countered by a bit of chalky backend tightness and three or four of keeping are commended 0409 Planted by the Warren Winiarski family in 1970 SLV achieved international fame when three year old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that shocked the wine world by triumphing over some of Frances greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the Judgment of Paris Today this historymaking vineyard continues to yield wines of multilayered complexity structure and spicy intensity

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.

In its youth, this wine rewards those who let it sit in the glass and open up before discovering its generous character. At first, it presents dark fruit and floral aromas, then an earthy hint of rosemary and black truffle. Similar flavors unfold, including dark cherry, blueberry and plum that join with cocoa powder and spiced vanilla. This mouthfilling wine builds in richness and density through its long, smooth finish. Try it with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game, or a wild mushroom tart. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
