Overview: Established in 1893, Stags’ Leap Winery is one of the oldest wine estates within the acclaimed Stags Leap District, producing wines expressive of its unique terroir. With an enduring winemaking philosophy that honors traditional techniques while embracing modern capabilities, and by using the finest grapes from our own 80-acre vineyard and from quality-focused growers, Stags’ Leap wines embody a natural balance, exhibiting both intensity and finesse, while bringing forth the inherent qualities of each variety.
The Leap is sourced from select Cabernet Sauvignon blocks within our Stags’ Leap Winery estate vineyard that are 25 years old, on average. This singular expanse of earth tucked up against the eastern palisades of Napa Valley features thin, rocky soils in its upper reaches, giving way to finer- grained loamy soils at its floor. The heat-reflecting palisades provide consistent warmth over the estate and help balance the cooling breezes from the south. This pronounced micro-climate is remarkably well-suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes of distinction.
Tasting Notes: Dark, alluring, layered intensity with notes of black berry fruit alongside a rich, mouth-enveloping texture. It offers aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, cassis, dark raspberry, and black cherry alongside cedar, allspice, graphite, espresso, olive tapenade, and chaparral herbs. Depth, finesse, and elegance are interwoven with power, grace, and structure, full of velvety rich tannins and a long, lingering fresh finish. Drinking beautifully now but exhibits the opulence and structure of the estate that allows this Cabernet to age for many years to come.
Pairing: Very approachable and pleasing upon release, this wine is sure to impress and pair well alongside many culinary dishes.
