The Tasting Panel " Brambly raspberry spices up the aromatics; dusted rose petal tannins play into a graphite "tightness." It eventually relaxes into espresso savoriness and a spotlight of regal dark fruit-tart and earthbound-with a slate finish. Structure abounds, but the finish of cranberry-pomegranate favors the sumptuous expression of the region's terroir. "
James SucklingA silky red with plum, blackcurrant and subtle chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body and a dense center palate, yet this remains refined and beautiful. Much better than the 2013. Drink in 2020.
Wine EnthusiastThis Cabernet Sauvignon, with 11% Merlot added, offers intense ripeness and a plush texture of soft tannins. Rich blackberry jam and chocolate flavors are layered with soy and leather notes, benefitting from integrated oak.
Wine AdvocateThis excellent winery has turned out a 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate that has all the elements one expects from Stags Leap. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, exhibits beautiful cedary, elegant black and red currant fruit, a medium body, graceful flavors, good acidity and light tannin. It is Bordeaux-like, but has the ripeness of Napa imprinted on it. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
Wine SpectatorRuggedly tannic, more sturdy than supple, with a mix of tough-edged, extracted dark berry, loamy earth and cedary oak notes. The strength of the tannins are a concern. Drink now through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 23,792 cases made.
All sizes are 750mL unless otherwise noted.
