Wine Review: This dark garnet colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags’ Leap Winery opens with a coffee grounds, flinty minerality, and black currant bouquet hints of rosemary, mint, and tomato leaf. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is well balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is black cherry and mild menthol blend with notes of clove and red raspberry. We also detected some hints of chocolate and mild mint. The finish is dry, and its tannins are nicely sustained. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab with a slow roasted pot roast or with a filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Sourced from select and diverse parcels from across Napa Valley, this rich and exuberant Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a showstopper. An intriguing bouquet opens with pronounced aromas of ripe blackberry and red cherry, underpinned by perfumed floral and savory herbal notes of dried rose petal, potpourri, sage, and mint. The wine is full-bodied with beautiful texture and depth on the palate, with multi-layered finesse and crowd-pleasing drinkability. On the palate, juicy cassis, blackberry, and red cherry are supported by notes of crushed red rose, tea leaf, and chocolate, giving this Cabernet a beguiling plushness and warmth. Finishing smooth and dry, with soft tannins and a lingering perfume of cassis, violet and dark chocolate. This dazzling Cabernet can easily pair alongside a variety of cuisines and culinary dishes.
