This wine comes from the Stags Leap District, universally hailed as the best Cabernet Sauvignon appellation in California. The unique soil and climate allow Stages Leap Cabernet Sauvignons to rival the great Grand Crus of Bordeaux. This wine exhibits aromas of cassis, cocoa, blueberry with hints of vanilla. With rich berry flavors and firm tannins, it has a long finish with great balance. Enjoyable while young, it will reward those with the patience to cellar it for a few years.
