Winemaker's Notes: Inky purple with blood-red tinged edges, the elegant and seamless 2013 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon's multilayered perfume fills the glass with notes of violets, lavender, and spring flowers. Intertwined with the floral notes are heady layers of plum, blackberry, and red currents. Silky, unctuous flavors of smoked cardamom, cinnamon, and black licorice lay out on the palate and finish with the taste and texture of liquefied rocks. Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot


93 Points The Wine Advocate - "One of the best-run and now superstar wineries in all of Napa is Cliff Lede. Starting with their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap, a beautiful example of this AVA, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, floral notes intermixed with crème de cassis , graphite and forest floor. It is full bodied, but with the elegance, finesse and lightness of being, despite its intensity. The wood is pushed to the background, and the wine is beautifully pure and long. Drink it over the next 20 years."

92 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine. Dark, sumptuous and deeply expressive, it is full of Stags Leap character. Inky blue and purplish fruit, spice, mocha, licorice and menthol are some of the signatures. This is one of the more polished, accessible 2013s readers will come across, although there is no shortage of intensity. Best of all, the 2013 is a terrific value by Napa Valley standards. In this vintage, the Cabernet has less Merlot in the blend."
