Wine Advocate Review
The 2015 The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is made up of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 50% new French oak for 20 months. It has a very deep garnet-purple color and reveals notions of creme de cassis, Black Forest cake and redcurrant jelly with suggestions of camphor, forest floor, pencil lead and cigar boxes with a touch of rose hip tea. The palate is full-bodied with a firm, grainy backbone and loads of red fruit sparks lifting the rich, black fruit layers to a long invigorating finish.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive personality of our estate vineyard and the outstanding vintage, which crafted a wine of deep color intensity, a multilayered mouthfeel and deep, pure, richness. This wine is classic Stags Leap District Cabernet, offering blackberry and black cherry aromas on the nose, along with subtle sweet baking spice and savory notes from the beautiful oak integration. On the palate, there is elegance, balance and complexity, showing ripe juicy blackberry, black cherry and black plum. On the incredibly lengthy finish, you find hints of chocolate, dark cocoa, mocha and black pepper spice. With fine grained mouth-pleasing tannins, this Cabernet exhibits the iconic power and intensity that have become synonymous with Stags’ Leap estate wines and drinks beautifully, representing the opulence and grace of the estate.
