Cliff Lede Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
Inky purple with blood-red tinged edges, the elegant and seamless 2013 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon's multilayered perfume fills the glass with notes of violets, lavender, and spring flowers. Intertwined with the floral notes are heady layers of plum, blackberry, and red currants. Silky, unctuous flavors of smoked cardamom, cinnamon, and black licorice lay out on the palate and finish with the taste and texture of liquefied rocks.
Graphite, cigar box, smoky oak and road tar notes are evident in the aroma. The currant and plummy flavors are pure yet unravel on the finish, where this loses focus. Drink now. 6,138 cases made.
