Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stag’s Leap 750ml

This wine invites the eye with glints of deep ruby and the nose with a pretty bouquet of dried lavender and rose petals. Bolstered by bushels of fresh black berries, this lovely Cab gives way to a peppery spice, freshly tanned leather and a touch of dark Valrhona chocolate to finish. An intensely powerful wine that will undoubtedly age gracefully, this Stags Leap will pair stunningly with that special dry-aged ribeye or a coffee-rubbed pork roast.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

The Stags Leap district's wines are resplendent with unique character and personality. The term 'texturial hedonism' is thrown around to describe what makes the region so special, and for good reason. The 2013 Handwritten Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a big, rich body and beguiling complexity of flavor, with the textural beauty so unique to these three square miles. Intensely aromatic notes of espresso bean, violet and blackberry give way to sweet spice, cacao and bramble on the palate. Enjoy now with a firm decant or cellar for five to seven years.
