Stag's Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 125th Anniversary 2018

Napa Valley, California, United StatesStag's Leap has shone under winemaker Christophe Paubert although he candidly admits he doesn't do much to the wine. He likes to keep it simple, and the results are simply excellent. 2018 is a mix of 80% cabernet sauvignon joined by bits of merlot, malbec, tannat, and petit verdot, and it is a standout. Less new oak has left an impression on this wine and consumers who love the value and flavours. Fine tannins lead the way allowing the fruit to shine without overpowering, mixing blackcurrant and earthy, nutty notes of cocoa, spice, and stone dust—stock up.Tasted: 03 December 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 57.99 BCLS AB 54.95 select private retailers Producer: Stags' Leap WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
