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. 19,500 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Stags' Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
