            [Notes2] => CASK 23 is a tale of two vineyards that come together in a harmonious blend, but it’s also a story of farming special blocks that become the true expression of this iconic wine. In the vineyard, specific blocks have been designated for CASK 23 and are farmed with the highest level of care throughout the growing season.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Youthful nose of sweet blackcurrant jam and black cherry with floral and cedar undertones. Dry, with high acid and grippy tannins; pronounced and dense flavours of sweet spiced fruit with chocolate and wood notes. Rich, ripe and full flavoured this wine is incredibly complex and a quintessential top-end Californian Cabernet.  Presented in a wooden box.
            [MediaNotes] => "From the historic site where Stag’s Leap first began, this is nearly 100% varietal, with just 1.5% Cabernet Franc. It delivers a lifted, floral character dipped in tangy red fruit."

96 POINTS - WINE SPECTATOR, MARCH 01, 2023
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => A dry and hot growing season, coupled with a global pandemic, and multiple wildfires made 2020 a year we won’t forget. Rain right at bloom interrupted fruit set and provided a “natural fruit thinning” that brought the crop in balance relative to the dry soil conditions. The warm weather this vintage produced wines with a riper character. We are very pleased with the resulting wines from the 2020 vintage (although there won’t be as many bottles) to carry our legacy forward.

About this product +

Producer >

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a Napa Valley estate rooted in the legends of the Stags Leap District and Napa Valley’s ascent to global wine recognition. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was established in 1970 with the purchase of the S.L.V. vineyard. Only six years later, the 1973 S.L.V. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded the highest honor at the Judgment of Paris blind tasting, besting First Growth Bordeaux Chateaux. This achievement solidified Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and the Napa Valley as places that crafted world-class wines. Today, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a quality benchmark for California Cabernet Sauvignon.

Viticulture >

CASK 23 is a tale of two vineyards that come together in a harmonious blend, but it’s also a story of farming special blocks that become the true expression of this iconic wine. In the vineyard, specific blocks have been designated for CASK 23 and are farmed with the highest level of care throughout the growing season.

Winemaking >

A dry and hot growing season, coupled with a global pandemic, and multiple wildfires made 2020 a year we won’t forget. Rain right at bloom interrupted fruit set and provided a “natural fruit thinning” that brought the crop in balance relative to the dry soil conditions. The warm weather this vintage produced wines with a riper character. We are very pleased with the resulting wines from the 2020 vintage (although there won’t be as many bottles) to carry our legacy forward.

"From the historic site where Stag’s Leap first began, this is nearly 100% varietal, with just 1.5% Cabernet Franc. It delivers a lifted, floral character dipped in tangy red fruit."
