A beautiful combination of provocative aromas of deep dark fruit, including black cherry, ripe blueberry and plum, with hints of espresso and anise. This wine develops tremendous complexity in the glass evolving into an array of deep berry, cedar, and leather. A signature Stags Leap Cabernet displaying both power and elegance.
Made from grapes from a single vineyard in the heart Stags Leap District AVA, this wine embodies the true essence of acclaimed Stags Leap Cabernet. The volcanic soils in which the grapes for this wine were grown and the cool, marine breezes that are funneled through the region by its unique geography produce some of the most distinct and prices Cabernet Sauvignons in the world.
A brilliant vintage from start to finish, 2012 gave us nothing but perfect ripening weather. Warm days, cool nights and not a drop of rain until all of our grapes were in the cellar. A bountiful harvest with some of the best fruit ever.
Fifty days skin contact. Barrel fermented in small French oak tanks and aged in 100% new French oak for 26 months. Bottled non-fined and non-filtered.
