Stag's Leap Wine Cellars S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
From a site planted in 1970 at the famous estate, this wine has beautiful perfume on the nose, and a supple yet firm structure. Dusty plum, dried herb and clove spice are interwoven between tangy cassis and notes of crushed rock. Enjoy best from 2029-2039.
Pure crème de cassis, violets, and lead pencil shaving nuances emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V., a concentrated, structured, almost austere 2019 that has terrific balance as well as a great mid-palate. Possessing youthful tannins and remarkable purity of fruit, this ultra-classic, flawlessly put together Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years. Count me impressed - this is brilliant juice.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. features perfumed aromas of violets and cassis. It's medium to full-bodied on the palate, nicely elegant while being powerful and sturdy at the same time. No, it's not made in a modern, blockbuster style, but it's true to its heritage, with subtle herb shadings and a long, silky finish. Drink Date: 2024-2040.
Ripe but sleek, showing blackberry and red currant pâte de fruit notes that work well together, laced with licorice snap and backed by tugs of warm earth and roasted alder on the finish. Drink now through 2032. 2,000 cases made.
