A Goldilocks vintage of perfect balance between warm and cool cycles produced ideal fruit with good acidity and highly concentrated aromas and flavors. 20 months of barrel aging helped maintain the vibrant freshness of the fruit and relax the tannins for early approachability. Bright red fruit, raspberry and black cherry and meet with tobacco for a complex yet elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with a long, velvet finish
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and offers an opaque purple color and a relatively muscular style for Stags Leap with superb blueberry and blackberry fruit, incense, camphor and crushed rock. It is deep, full-bodied and stunning. This has a great future and because of the depth, balance and moderate tannin, give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25 years.
