2013 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 'Cask 23' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

"Cask 23" is one of the great wines of The United States, any way you look at it. A parcel and barrel selection (of Fay and SLV) first made in 1974 at André Tchelitscheff's suggestion, the 2013 is "backward, but concentrated, with beautiful blue, red and black fruits, spring flowers, a touch of toasty oak, relatively noticeable tannin and a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel." It's an American First Growth with a finish that lasts for minutes, and is possibly the best Cask 23 ever made, including the 1974.

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is unquestionably one of Napa Valley’s benchmark producers. At the now legendary “Spurrier Tasting” of ’76, this operation topped the world’s best – most notably the Bordeaux first growths – and sent shock waves through the wine world. It was the first time that an American winery had ever gone toe-to-toe with the Old World and delivered a haymaker, and the fact that the judges were French only made it sweeter. It was a turning point for the entire California wine industry. Now in their fifth decade, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars has expanded their portfolio to include some fabulous whites to accompany their muscular Cabs. We wouldn’t expect anything less from the winery that changed it all. They’ve made a few changes internally as well... a partnership between Ste. Michelle Wine Estates and Marchesi Antinori proudly accepted the stewardship of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and its legacy in 2007, cinching their success for years to come.
