STAGS' LEAP WINERY, OAKVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2018

 

 

Established in 1893 and located in the heart of the Napa Valley’s famous Stags Leap District, Stags’ Leap Winery remains a stalwart in the region and the age-worthy wines continue to garner top accolades. While primarily known for their vineyards within Stags Leap District, the winery has also maintained tremendous vineyard land in nearby Oakville, an appellation known for its cellar-worthy reds that’s also home to estates like Harlan and Screaming Eagle. Today we’re thrilled to present the inaugural 2018 Stags’ Leap Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine bursting with notes of dark berry fruit, oak spice, and fresh herbs. This is a generous, complex, and concentrated wine that is a must-have for all Cabernet lovers. 

 

Oakville is located in the heart of Napa Valley and the vineyards here have long been revered for excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. Napa enthusiasts will be excited to hear the majority of Stag’s Leap’s 2018 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the legendary Gamble Ranch, located just off of Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Oakville District. Today’s wine is a barrel selection of the most expressive lots from the appellation; the lots were fermented separately in French oak barrels (25% new) for 19 months and blended just prior to bottling. The wine is lush and layered on the palate, weaving between nuances of dark fruit, cinnamon, clove, and wild herbs. The French oak influence is apparent, but incredibly well integrated, and the core of acidity keeps the wine fresh on the palate. This is a bold, decadent Cabernet that easily has the potential to age for many years to come. Be sure to place your order soon to secure special pricing, up to 20% off!
