Stags' Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Napa Valley, California, United StatesThe Stags' Leap Cabernet is built around valley floor fruit from cooler pockets in the south. It's still Napa through and through, with rich cassis and blackberry, backed by mint and toasted baking spices after aging in 37% new French oak for 20 months. It's medium-full bodied and nicely structured, with firm, fine-grained tannins and enough freshness to make it all work. Some time in the cellar will allow the oak to further integrate, but there is lots of appeal to its youthful fruit.
