Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2007

Winemaker's 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.

Austere, with moderately ripe currant, sage, herb, and blackberry flavors. Medium-weight and well-balanced. Drink now through 2006.

Clean and bright aromas of cassis and blackberry, with a note of anise. Great fruit expression and excellent tannic structure; finishes strong, with balanced acidity. Excellent with game dishes.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc) is everything that one expects in a wine from this sector that is known for elegance, harmony, and Margaux-like finesse. A perfectly balanced Cabernet, it exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of spring flowers, black and red currants as well as graphite. It is deep, rich, young, and promising with plenty of tannin, but an unmistakable, profound minerality. Although accessible, 2-3 years of bottle age will be beneficial, and the wine should age for two decades. As the results attest, owner Cliff Lede, manager David Abreu, and up and coming winemaker Michelle Edwards are all obsessed with high quality. The ubiquitous Michel Rolland is also in the background for blending, consulting, ect. The 2007s appear to be stunning efforts.

Beautifully polished, ripe and intricate Cabernet from an awesome vintage, with layers of rich currant, plum, mocha, sage and floral notes, finishing long and firm, with a complex aftertaste. Best from 2002 through 2012.

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.

A bold, rich, intense and concentrated style, with layers of earthy currant, anise, blackberry and sage. Well focused, complex and long on the finish, it's still a bit rough and chewy, so it's best to cellar short term. Best from 2004 through 2012.
