1996 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V.

Wine Description

Dark, ripe and rich - classic Napa Cab. It’s young and tight now, of course, with jammy blackcurrant fruit and sweet oak, and the tannins are finely etched, but firm. Finishes with concentrated blackberry fruit, but dry and raspy right now. The stuffing and balance are there for it to develop into a beautiful wine. — W.E. Wine Enthusiast-92 points
