2008 Stags Leap District Napa Valley Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon

Rich and fragrant, this wine has all the succulent depths of black currant fruit and layers of savory, chocolate-scented tannins that cult cabernets have tried to emulate and perfect. Since 1978, this series of rocky knolls under the Stag’s Leap Escarpment have produced one of Napa Valley’s signature red wines; the generosity and concentration come naturally. This is a vibrant 2008, one that reaches over the top while staying grounded, earthy and real. (2,400 cases)
