2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley
While the 2011 vintage was cooler than in recent years, our vineyard site with great exposure and drying winds provided us with conditions to achieve great ripeness. The aromas are reminiscent of forest fruits, cedar and pencil shavings. The palate opens to flavors of bramble, berries, mocha, warm vanilla and wet earth. The tannins are characteristic of Stags Leap District, being present and well-structured while wrapped in a silky and vibrant elegance.
