International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88($110) Saturated ruby-red. Oaky aromas of cassis, plum, cola and dark chocolate. Very ripe and chocolatey, with supple, somewhat low-toned flavors of currant, dark plum, tobacco and earth. Finishes sweet and persistent, with slightly dry-edged, earthy flavors of sassafras and sweet tobacco. Very Stags Leap in character.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2006
Wine Spectator | Rating: 83A bit murky, with earth- and herb-laced currant fruit that has a dry, austere edge and ends with leathery flavors. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 968 cases made.Author: James Laube
