Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Mar 2016)
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa (86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot) was aged 20 months in French oak, of which 37% was new. This is a structured, tannic, rather austere style of wine that mimics a fine Bordeaux. It is deep ruby/purple and offers notes of graphite, black and red currants, licorice and tobacco leaf. It is medium-bodied, structured, and best cellared for several years and drunk over the following 15 years. 90+ Points

Wine maker notes
The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the elegant success that resulted from the cooler 2011 vintage. Black currant, cherry and blueberry aromatics remain distinctly bright in this inviting wine. The palate offers a layered complexity of forest floor, savory herbs, and sweet tobacco that seamlessly blends with the vibrant red fruit. Persistent tannins frame a round, full structure and soft, fresh finish.

Other text
Dramatic improvements are clearly underway at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, which was sold to a consortium led by Tuscany’s Piero Antinori in 2007. Antinori brought in well-known consultant Renzo Cotarella to improve the quality and, hopefully, get this winery back to the lofty heights it achieved in the seventies and early eighties. They seem to be well on their way, which is good news for consumers. This is a large estate of 104 acres, all situated as one giant block of vineyards in the southern part of the Stags Leap appellation. The change in ownership and winemaking staff shows progressive improvement with each vintage starting with 2007. The 2009s look to be their best wines to date. As for the 2007 reds, normally four cuvees are produced, all based on Cabernet Sauvignon, including the Cask 23, which comes from the best lots from the Fay and S.L.V. estate vineyards after fermentations are completed. The most impressive Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars’ offerings made since the 1985 vintage are the three 2009s I was permitted to taste from barrel.
