If you were to turn the pages of a history book dedicated to Napa Valley’s oldest Wine Estates, the number of wineries that you would find dating back to the 1800’s would be surprisingly small.  Stags’ Leap Winery would certainly make the list with vines planted in 1872, and the first vintage in 1893.  By 1895 they produced 40,000 gallons annually from the area’s rich terroir.  Their flagship wine, The Leap is composed from the best barrels, from their best vineyard blocks, and each lot is aged separately, with only the most expressive barrels chosen for this wine.  And at 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 is massively structured with pristinely focused layers of inky dark berries, espresso roast, wild mint, black chocolate, graphite, and exotic spice.  At under $100/btl you may want to jump on this right away.

Recognized for its unique soils, composed of clay sediments and volcanic deposits, Stags Leap District was Napa Valley’s first AVA.  The heat-reflecting off of the rocky palisades provides consistent warmth and lends balance to the cooling breezes from the south. The area is particularly revered for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and shares a home with notable wineries Shafer, Odette, Regusci, and Cliff Lede to name a few.  If you love full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of personality, this one is for you.

Description

2016 STAGS’ LEAP THE LEAP CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Winery Notes: “Our 2016 The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive personality of our estate vineyard and this incredible vintage, crafting a darkly intense, multilayered, rich and approachable wine with depth of fruit, plushness and creamy richness. This wine is classic Stags Leap District Cabernet, offering blackberry, blueberry and macerated strawberry aromas on the nose, along with subtle baking spice notes of cinnamon, milk chocolate and coffee, alongside more savory notes of black olive and chaparral herbs.  On the palate, there is elegance, freshness and complexity, showing lifted dark blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry fruits followed by hints of chocolate, espresso and black pepper spice.  With big, round, mouth-pleasing tannins and a silky, smooth lithe texture, this Cabernet exhibits the iconic power and intensity that have become synonymous with Stags’ Leap estate wines but drinks elegantly, demonstrating the opulence and grace of the estate.”
