2013 Cliff Lede Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Stags Leap District
Like stepping out in to a cool, deep black night, this Cabernet is fathomless, with aromas of blueberry and cassis syrup. Rich and chocolaty, its 9% Petite Verdot in the mix gives it such a deep color. Black olives, spice cake, and root beer aromas tantalize the senses and invite another sip. Just killer Cabernet, Parker called this "beautifully pure and long," and "a beautiful example of this AVA." Antonio Galloni calls it "a beautiful wine... This is one of the more polished, accessible 2013s readers will come across... a terrific value by Napa Valley standards." We agree!
