Blackberry, Dark Chocolate, Tea, Tobacco, Oak
Dark and luscious with a well balanced oak profile this is a classic cab from the iconic Stags Leap District.
I strive for the balanced structure that comes from the silky skin tannin married with the complexity of medium-toast French oak that I source from seven different coopers. The front palate is the hook: explosive dark berry fruit that grabs my attention. The rich front end of the wine carries through to a long, complex finish. This wine has range!
Whether you want to pair it with an impromptu BBQ with friends and family or a formal holiday meal, this is a wine for every occasion. Likewise, decanted in its youth or tucked away into your cellar, both options will be well enjoyed!
