Stag's Leap Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

75cl / 15%

“A barrel sample, the 2017 Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep purple-black colored with pronounced notes of crème de cassis, mocha, plum preserves and unsmoked cigars with touches of dried herbs, fragrant soil and iron ore.

Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a great intensity of ripe black fruit and grainy tannins with just enough freshness and a long, slightly chewy finish.”

Prior to the 1990 vintage, Cask 23 was a selection of the finest blocks of the SLV Vineyard. Then, with the acquisition of the neighbouring Fay Vineyard, this bottling transitioned into a blend of the finest parcels of both. This 2017 vintage (with 21 months in oak, as with both the single-vineyard bottlings) combines close to equal parts of the two sites, showing the brightness and energy of Fay with the brooding power of SLV.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep purple-black
Aroma: The wine opens with a rich berry medley and silky, layered aromas of dates, cocoa spice, cassis, black olive, and pomegranate.
Palate: The 2017 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and dark fruit of S.L.V. The palate is full in structure, yet balanced and persistent with a lush texture. Flavors of currant, dark cherry, and spice linger on the finish. Enjoy this CASK 23 with red wine braised Osso Buco and wild mushroom risotto, green olive crusted lamb rack with fennel & couscous or New York steak au poivre with honey and sherry glazed shallots.
Grape Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

History of Stag’s Leap Winery

Stags’ Leap Winery is located seven miles (11km) north of Napa town in the the now famed Stag’s Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. It is situated on a large estate with 36 hectares (90 acres) under vine. Considered one of the “first growths” of Napa Valley, grapes have been continuously grown on the lands of Stags’ Leap since the 1880s. The property itself was founded in 1893 and by 1920 the manor house was built and named Stags’ Leap.

Stags’ Leap is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, as well as Chardonnay and Viognier. A rosé is also produced from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Within the portfolio are varietal and blended expressions as well as single-vineyard and single-barrel selection wines. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the “Judgement of Paris”.
