had this wine at a fine dining restaurant and it was outstanding. One of my favorite vineyards, always great wine and value for the price. I never regret this for any occasion or just an average evening for dinner regardless of vintage Im always pleased.

A tremendous effort, ultratrich, supple, complex and concentrated. Delivers a wave of plush currant, black cherry, black olive, sage and spicy flavors that glide across the palate with smooth, silky tannins that have become the trademark of this wine. Best from 2000 through 2010. Contains 95% Cabernet, with a touch of Merlot.

(Barrel tasting) Supple and elegant, with pretty, spicy currant, floral, anise, black cherry and toasty oak flavors that build. Gains complexity on the finish.

Rich and chocolatey, showing intense, focused herb, currant, coffee and cedar flavors that pick up an earthy tobacco and mineral edge on the finish. Offers silky grace notes on the long, full, rich, complex finish. Tasty now, but should age well through the decade. Best beginning in 1996.

This red blend is intense and concentrated, with a rich and supple texture and loads of currant, anise, black cherry, plum and berry notes. On the finish, the flavors weave together into a complex tapestry, and though firmly tannic, it's perfectly balanced. Tempting now; at its best from 2000 to 2006, maybe beyond.

Starts out with an earthy, mulch, loamy character before revealing its core currant, sage, herb, and bay leaf flavors, along with hints of espresso. It also shows considerable tannic strength, finishing with a dry, mineral quality.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 2 750ml


External Review

(Barrel tasting) At first it reveals an earthy, gamy flavor, but grows into a very distinctive wine, with rich layers of earthy currant, coffee and mocha. Shows a supple texture and excellent depth and length, all the while maintaining a sense of elegance.
