About Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
Winner at the 1976 Judgement of Paris, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars showed the world that Napa Valley wine could compete with the best of France. Today, Stag's Leap continues to produce premium estate Cabernet Sauvignon from its winery in Yountville, California. Cask 23, the flagship wine, is a blend from the prized S.L.V. and Fay vineyards.

Bright ruby-red, the most saturated of these 2009 cabernets. Good floral and herbal lift to the aromas of currant, black cherry, soil and underbrush. A step up in pliancy of texture and depth, with good vinosity giving shape to the middle palate. Finishes with rather suave tannins, a whiff of herbs and sneaky persistence. Still, this is less expansive on the back end than the better vintages of past years from this winery.
