New in our Collector’s Library, two wines from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars.
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, notably known for being the California winery that won the Cabernet Sauvignon competition in the 1976 Judgment of Paris, was founded in 1970, and is considered a Napa Valley first-growth estate.
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellar is not to be confused with the nearby producer, Stags’ Leap Winery. The two came to legal blows in the 1980s over the Stag’s Leap title, but an agreement was reached over the careful placement of the apostrophe.
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars – 2014 – CASK 23 Cabernet Sauvignon
94 points – Wine Enthusiast
Complex fruit aromas along with notes of brown sugar, black tea and violet. On the palate, this opulent Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich mouthfeel with flavors complementing the aromas. The wine’s tannins and texture are on the line between elegance and power and lead to a very long, plush finish.
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars – 2014 – FAY Cabernet Sauvignon
93 points – Wine Enthusiast
The 2014 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon has a fragrant nose of ripe blackberry and raspberry along with notes of sweet fig, cinnamon and violet. The palate is elegant with silky tannins and a core of rich fruit with a hint of crème brulee. The wine finishes with a lingering berry pie character.
