    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rich and inviting, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers powerful blackberry and black cherry aromas with hints of cigar box and spice. The black fruit carries over onto the palate and is accented by notes of anise, mandarin orange, violets and cassis. The tannins are smooth and fine-grained, allowing the wine to flow smoothly across the palate. The wine has great acidity and a persistent fruit-driven finish.

    Serve S.L.V. with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game or a wild mushroom tart.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An awesome Cabernet, so elegant, powerful and refined. As softly attractive as it is, it has a reserve of power that should enable it to age effortlessly. Ripe, sweet tannins house exorbitant flavors of blackberries and cassis, accented with new oak. It makes for a full-bodied, showy 100% Cabernet, drinkable now and over the next 15 years.

    The finesse of Stags Leap District tannins is at the center of this wine, buoying pure cherry fruit from the initial scent through to a lasting finish. This is firm and vinous, with a depth and breadth that makes it a strong candidate for cellaring ten years or more. A graceful vintage of S.L.V

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon SLV Estate shows off deep layers of expressive black fruit, licorice, white flowers and tar. Here, too, the influence of Antinori is felt in the wine’s polish, even if the real leap in quality does not take place until 2010 for this bottling. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the big, dramatic finish. This is a hugely delicious wine with plenty of intensity and sheer personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
