The inky black 2016 Stags Leap District is a lithe and tempting elixir that dazzles the senses. Even in its youth, it displays a fully integrated nose of fresh red and black currents, wild blackberries, and a perfumed bouquet of violets and lavender. Spice notes of smoked cardamom, anise, and cumin dance among the fig paste and Luxardo cherry flavors. The opulent finish crescendos in a wave of supple tannins, which nimbly glides along the palate and draws the taster back for another joyful sip.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up notes of fresh blackcurrants, warm plums, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil with wafts of kirsch, sandalwood and dusty soil. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and a long earthy finish.
