Cliff Lede Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
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.
Wine SpectatorFriendly plum and blackberry cobbler notes are laced with lightly toasted vanilla and black licorice details. Offers a plush, frankly toasted finish. Drink now through 2022. 6,720 cases made.
