(15.3% alcohol): Good bright, deep red. Black raspberry and dark chocolate on the nose. Sweet, dense and creamy on the palate, with plush flavors of kirsch , licorice and bitter chocolate. The broad finish features substantial tannins and a touch of warmth. This big boy is almost too much of a good thing; it currently shows less refinement than some recent vintages.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five (99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot) exhibits aromas of blueberries, black currants, incense and delicate floral notes. Following the stunning perfume, this full-bodied, elegant, super-rich wine reveals great definition and purity of black currants and black raspberries gentle wrapped in subtle spicy oak. This classic Cabernet is the quintessential model for both Stags Leap and Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are sweet enough that it can be drunk now, but it should evolve easily for two decades.

Intense and concentrated, this red is typically rustic, tilting toward
dark berry and cedar, with gripping, gutsy tannins that should
appeal to those who like to chew on their wines.

Lacks the intensity and extraction of most other vintages of this wine. But still a really good vino with dark berries, full body and a long finish.

Mark's B'day. Deep dark purple. Loads of heavy black fruit. Will stand the test of time.
