2017 Stags' Leap Cabernet Sauvignon The Leap Napa

Share on Facebook

Winery Tasting Notes & Vintage Details



Our 2017 The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive personality of our estate vineyard and this wonderful vintage, offering a dark, seductive, full-bodied wine with an intensity of dark berry fruit alongside a plush, creamy texture. This wine is classic Stags Leap District Cabernet, exhibiting blackberry, raspberry and black currant aromas on the nose, along with subtle baking spice notes of cinnamon, dark chocolate and espresso. The palate comes through with interweaving layers of blackberry, deep plum and black currant, alongside delicate nuances of mocha, espresso, graphite and black pepper spice. The mouthfeel is powerful and rich, with depth and structure, full of velvety round tannins and a long, lingering mouth-watering finish. The texture is robust and plentiful, but the intensity is softened by the terroir elements coming through from the well-balanced delicacy and grace that has become synonymous with Stags’ Leap estate wines. Drinks superbly now but demonstrates the opulence and intrigue of the estate, that will allow this Cabernet to age for many years to come.



Vintage Note The 2017 vintage in the Napa Valley was smaller yielding but high in quality. The region enjoyed much needed rain during the winter months ending the drought. A short period of warmer than usual temperatures during Labor Day weekend accelerated harvest for early ripening grape varieties, resulting in an intense and, at times, unpredictable harvest. The wines show exceptional flavor intensity and conditions were perfect for producing a wine with beautiful fruit as well as highly saturated color and layers of complexity.
