Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish.

James SucklingVery attractive dark-plum and blackcurrant aromas with nicely integrated, toasty oak and leafy notes that lead to a palate with a rich, round and very fresh feel to the coffee-laced finish. Drink or hold.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a beautiful, classic wine that does everything right. Black cherries, blackberries, licorice, scorched earth, and graphite notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Cabernet that shows the classic, straight style of the vintage nicely. It has solid structure and will put on weight with short-term cellaring, and should have 10-15 years of prime drinking.
