Description

S.L.V., also known as Stag's Leap Vineyards, is the winery's first vineyard. Planted in 1970, this vineyard achieved international fame when three-year-old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that stunned the wine world when it bested some of France's greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the "Judgment of Paris." Today, this history-making vineyard denys to produce wines with layers of complexity, spicy intensity and excellent structure—promising long life and ageability. The 2012 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon offers intriguing aromas of cocoa powder, wild blackberries and currants. The wine has a plush entry that fills the mouth with dark blueberry and wild berry flavors along with hints of spice. The palette is rich and concentrated with big, yet round, tannins that lead to a finish of black currant with hints of sweet oak. The wine's structured tannins, rich fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine’s ability to age.
