Terlato Stag's Leap Cabernet 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine comes from the Stags Leap District, universally hailed as the best Cabernet Sauvignon location in California. The unique soil and climate here allow Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignons to rival the great Grand Crus of Bordeaux. This wine exhibits aromas of cassis, cocoa, blueberry with hints of vanilla. With rich berry flavors and firm tannins, it has a long finish with great balance. Enjoyable while young, it will reward those with the patience to cellar it for a few years.

After 50 years in the wine industry, wine is still an inspiration for me. Every vintage brings an anticipation and excitement. After all, it’s a new birth. When I discovered Pinot Grigio in Italy, I was taken by its fresh aromas, its crispness, freshness and the way it paired effortlessly with foods. It was virtually unknown when I brought it to the United States in 1979. Not surprisingly, an entire nation of wine drinkers embraced Pinot Grigio for the same reasons I did. Today Pinot Grigio is the most requested wine in fine restaurants, and Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is the quality leader for the varietal. The U.S. was introduced to a new wine, as well as a new level of quality from Italy. I still feel about it today the same way I did the first time I tasted it. When I tasted Syrah from the Rhone Valley, dense, rich and aromatic, it immediately captured my fascination as well. It was a wine that I knew could stand alongside the best of another classic, Cabernet Sauvignon, because the taste profiles were similar: dense, rich and aromatic. We have fashioned our Syrah along those same lines. Of course, like most wine lovers, I have had a lifelong love affair with Bordeaux, the aristocracy of red wines, a blend of classic varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Angels’ Peak is the first of three blends we will introduce. When my sons and I decided to become vintners, our winemaking team found the right soil, and climate conditions that suited our needs. We planted some vineyards, bought others and Terlato Vineyards was born. It is small venture, but a sincere tribute to the wines and winemakers who have inspired us for decades. I regard these winemakers as artists and dreamers. I know this is true because now I am a winemaker myself. I want Terlato Vineyards to stand among the finest wines in the world, with those crafted by my friends. Read less

A rarified nose of violets and posies, this wine is made in a hermitage bordeaux style - ie, bordeaux grapes with some syrah for additional fruit. 50% Cab S, 15% merlot, 35% syrah. Very thick and luxurious, a really powerful concentrated wine, with flavors of black currants and blueberries. Rather tannic finish, after such a sweetly fruity wine. Finish is on blackberry, bramble and eucalyptus. Nice.

Inspired by Maugaux, this wine is cabernet sauvignon primarily. It has a more austere nose than its sister wines with a drier, earthier flavor. Lots of eucalyptus at first, with a quartz mineral layer and cassis. A lot more tannins on the finish - good intensity and minerality.
