Offers explosive, dense fruit, with blackberry, wild berry, black licorice, savory herb and underbrush flavors, showing touches of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Ends with a sustained burst of flavor.

Two cuvees I didnƒA?A?t taste in 2012 include the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap - a wine that tastes like Chateau Margaux on steroids. It is flowery, beautifully elegant, but very concentrated, with sweet, sweet fruit, ripe tannin and a long, long finish. This is finesse at its most intense, but there's no doubting its graciousness and overall harmony.
