Cabernet Sauvignon

We source this intense, elegant wine from our four estates in Stags Leap District. We harvest the vineyards by hand in the cool night hours and age the wine in new French oak. Concentrated and rich, and redolent with flavors of plum, black raspberry, black currant, and cola. The texture is velvety and creamy. Leathery tannins and juicy acidity frame the structure of this balanced, delicious wine. This wine would be the highlight of any dinner party. Try pairing with an aged porterhouse steak with scalloped potatotoes, spring lamb stew with fennel and peas, or our winery chef’s recipe of radicchio risotto.

2015 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes
Deep ruby color is a signature of our Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. Exotic aromas of sandlewood, espresso, brown sugar, and licorice combine with sweet ripe fruit. Concentrated and rich, and redolent with flavors of plum, black raspberry, black currant, and cola. The texture is velvety and creamy. Leathery tannins and juicy acidity frame the structure of this balanced, delicious wine.
Production Notes
Following several years of drought, February delivered much-needed rain to the vines. Budbreak occurred early in 2015 due to warmer than normal temperatures in late winter and early spring. Warm temperatures and abundant sunshine June through October led to good growth the rest of the season, an early harvest, and very high-quality, balanced fruit.
Vineyard Notes
The Stags Leap District’s moderate temperature, influenced by the San Pablo Bay, leads to slow, even fruit development throughout the growing season. The majority of our 47 acres across four estate vineyards in this region are densely planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties on steeply terraced hillsides with Bale clay-loam soils, resulting in very low yields of intensely flavored grapes.
Food Pairing Notes
This elegant, deeply colored wine has the firmness and structure to be the highlight of a dinner party. Try pairing with an aged porterhouse steak with scalloped potatotoes, spring lamb stew with fennel and peas, or our winery chef’s recipe of radicchio risotto.
