93pts James Suckling

Jump into this Stag's Leap Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and roll around in the deep, dark fruit, hint of florality, and lovely earthiness.

James Suckling: "An aromatic red with currants and blackberries, as well as roses, following through to a full body with round tannins and a savory finish. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2021." Jan 2021

Winery: "The 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is expressive and inviting, with a bouquet of wild blackberry and fresh black currant fruit alongside delicate floral notes of geranium and violet, with warmer notes of caramel, sweet cinnamon, cardamom and black pepper spice coming through from the oak integration. On the palate, the berry fruit profile continues with juicy blackberry, cassis and strawberry, but there are also hints of sweet tobacco, brown spice and bittersweet chocolate, giving this Cabernet a rich charm and fullness. Seamlessly integrated oak and cocoa-powdery tannins provide a plush mouthfeel and add layers of complexity, all wrapping up with a lengthy textured finish. Incredibly approachable and pleasing upon release, this wine is sure to impress and pair well alongside many culinary treats."
