Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is a robust mineral-laden wine—a true representation of the substantial appellation, so good at offering power and complexity. Quiet layers of toasted coconut and oak are complemented by baked cherry and blackberry along with an unshakable hint of bay leaf. This will do well with more time, so enjoy best 2025–2030.
JS 92
James Suckling
A silky red with plum, blackcurrant and subtle chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body and a dense center palate, yet this remains refined and beautiful. Much better than the 2013. Drink in 2020.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the deep purple-black colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers notes of blackberries, black cherries, cedar and earth with a waft of cloves and lavender. The medium-bodied palate is firm, hard, chewy and a bit on the delicate side but shows good expression.
D 90
Decanter
Gentle forest fruit and tarry plum aromas, together with an exotic cinnamon note from the oak. A wine of volume as well as finesse and poise, with dried flowers on the finish. Drinking Window 2019-2029.

Legend has it that quick and nimble stags would escape the indigenous hunters of southern Napa Valley through the landmark palisades that sit just northeast of the current city of Napa. As a result, the area was given the name, Stags Leap. While its grape-growing history dates back to the mid-1800s, winemaking didn’t really take off until the mid-1970s after a small but pivotal blind tasting called the Judgement of Paris.

When a 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won first place against its high-profile Bordeaux contenders, like Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, international attention to the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley escalated rapidly.

The vineyards in this one-of-a-kind wine growing region receive hot afternoon air reflecting off of its eastern palisade formation. In combination with the cool evening breezes from the San Pablo Bay just south, this becomes an optimal environment for grape growing. While many varieties could thrive here, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate with virtually no others, save for a spot or two of Syrah.

Stags Leap soils—eroded volcanic and old river sediments—encourage well established root systems and result in complex, terroir-driven wines. Stags Leap District reds have a distinct sour cherry and black berry character with baking spice and dried earth aromas, and supple tannins.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
