2010 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

2010 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa image

(92 points) Outer quote mark In a vintage such as 2010 where individual terroirs are so clearly marked, the Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cask 23 – a blend of the SLV and Fay – is at a distinct disadvantage because it naturally lacks the character and personality of those two wines. I must also note that the SLV and Fay have improved dramatically on their own terms, so the rationale of blending them is further diminished. To be sure the Cask 23 is an excellent representation of the vintage. There is plenty of 2010 fruit, structure and tannin, along with attractive hints of smoke, tar and incense, but at the end of the day, I find the Cask 23 less satisfying than Stag's Leap Wine Cellars’ very best wines.
