Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars
“I just watched Bottle Shock and for the first time realized how great the early seventies Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabs were. I ran a restaurant back then and drank them all the time. For years I have told wine friends how great they were but until the movie, everyone thought I was not quite sure. I still remember the first sip being a velvety smooth taste, not striking or bitter or even a bite, but silky smooth, I am not an expert but I will remember that taste forever. Thanks so much.”
“2000 Cask 23, Cabernet Sauvignon: My wife and I bought this delightful vintage in 2003. It traveled to Florida and for the most part, resided in our wine cellar till 2009 where it was then taken to Jamaica, via Michelle's suitcase. We opened the wine on July 4th, 2011. Having enjoyed Stag's Leap Wine Cellars for years, we opened the bottle with absolute apprehension, thinking the last two years might have been the coup de gras. This wine survived amazingly intact. The color is night red, with definite flavors of current and spice. Thank you Stag's Leap for making this a spectacular July 4th. ”
“Just opened a bottle of 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon last night, pulled from a friends cellar a generous friend, I might add. The cork broke and the initial pour was questionable. Within fifteen minutes, the second pour was a revelation, with a dark, black fruit nose mingled with olive tapenade and spice. The palate was strutting a lush mouthfeel and plenty of fruit. This wine caught everyone by surprise, and was a joy to consume. At 13 percent alcohol, this wine still has a life ahead of it. ”
