Cliff Lede Vineyards Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$69.99

A fantastic Cabernet from a rising star in the Stags Leap District! Get the stellar new 2016 vintage from Cliff Lede while it's available. 93 Points Robert Parker:  " The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up notes of fresh blackcurrants, warm plums, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil with wafts of kirsch, sandalwood and dusty soil. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and a long earthy finish." 93 Points James Suckling: "Ripe boysenberry and blackcurrant aromas with brambly cabernet herbs and bracken, leading to a palate that has a superbly succulent, fresh and handsomely defined palate. Terrific freshness and energy through the finish. Dense fruit. Drink or hold." At Cliff Lede Vineyards, winemaker Christopher Tynan crafts Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, with the flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the steep eastern hillside portion of the estate. In 2015, Cliff Lede Vineyards achieved both Napa Green Land and Napa Green Winery certification.

Cherries, licorice and mocha. It's a Napa cab through and through. Juicy and hedonistic.

This a fantastic cab. A worthy pairing with a hearty beef stew during a raw MN fall day.

Enjoyable, wasn’t big and bold as was expecting. Would not have again at the Killeen price point
