About Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

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 saturated ruby. Aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, graphite and shoe polish, plus a suggestion of leafy herbacity. Supple, pliant and dense, with dark berry flavors complicated by a subtle herbal nuance. Very Stags Leap in character. Sound acids and substantial dusty-but-fine tannins give this sweet but grown-up cabernet solid structure. Showing considerably better today than this winery Fay Vineyard bottling.
