Cliff Lede 2015 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2015 Stags Leap District Cabernet shows all of the concentration and depth of the vintage in its exuberant and concentrated nose of cassis, black slate, jasmine, and warm fig aromas. Fresh aromas of black currant, crushed blackberries, and warm cherry soar with spice layers of clove, ancho chile, and cinnamon. The long opulent palate tastes of liquefied minerals and possesses a voluptuous raspberry liqueur-like texture with precise, building tannin that intertwine seamlessly with the luxurious flavors.
Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.
