Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Packs in lots of rich, intense, deep flavors of currant, anise, coffee, cedar, mineral, sage and black cherry. Tightly wound, with rich, firm, earthy, detailed tannins, it needs a sign: patience required. 3,688 cases made.

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.

The classic. You just can't go wrong when you order a bottle of this baby. It's not too big, a little jam and fruit but smooth as a baby's bottom. Yum.

a little overpriced and young...had a bottle recently @ capital grill in NYC and was disappointed...for $120 i felt it could have been more complex...our 2nd bottle was half the price and matched much better with our steaks (btw it was a pirramimma shiraz from australia...amazing) but i digress...stags leap overrated

...dark ruby/purple color in addition to an attractive nose of minerals, Asian spices, black currants, and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with good acidity, ripe tannin, and a slightly compressed finish... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
