Handwritten 2011 Stags Leap Cab Sauv
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon 'Stags Leap' displays the balance of textural finesse and characteristic intensity found uniquely in the Stags Leap district. At first fresh leather, cedar box and juicy blackberry on the nose, wait for the aromatics to develop with sweet spices and tobacco emerging after a few minutes in the glass. Structured, yet soft tannins and ample acidity lend this silky wine to an array of food pairings. Try a mushroom risotto topped with duck confit, or for lighter fair perhaps a simple roast chicken stuffed with fresh herbs and citrus.
