2019 Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Was $60)

SKU #5062125
Winery Notes- Sourced from primarily cooler appellations within Napa Valley, this 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon shows bright red berry fruits on the nose, alongside delicate floral notes of lavender and violet. Baking spice notes of caramel, black pepper, and clove also come through, an indication of the well-integrated oak character. On the palate, juicy cassis, blackberry, and red cherry are supported by hints of delicate red rose, tobacco leaf, and earthy forest floor, giving this Cabernet a richness and layered texture. Crispy, firm tannins provide a pleasurable mouthfeel with refreshing fruit and balanced acidity, developing into a long, smooth, dry finish. Incredibly approachable upon release, this dazzling Cabernet can be paired well alongside a variety of culinary dishes.

JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 93
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: Lovely aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, ground spice and anise. Full-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Juicy and vibrant on the palate with lovely balance and intensity. Drinking well now, but can definitely age. Drink or hold.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Sourced primarily from the Coombsville and Yountville AVAs and matured 21 months in about one-third new French oak (the rest goes mainly into second and third-use French barrels), the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts scents of cedar, cigar box and cassis. It's medium to full-bodied, dusty and tannic, rather than being charming or plush. On the savory, earthy side, with a dry, dusty finish, this really does need a steak (or some other red meat) to shine.
WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 91
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: A textbook Napa Cabernet, with the vintage's ripe, accessible cassis and blackberry puree profile on display, laced with singed vanilla and tobacco notes along the way. The generous finish lets a toasty edge play with the fruit.
