2002 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1018806 91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark A touch less herbal and a little richer in sweet oak spice than its sibling from the Fay Vineyard, this bottling shares a certain familial plumpness and palatal suppleness nonetheless. It juxtaposes lots of ripe cherries and deep, cassis-like fruit with elements of milk chocolate, vanilla and cream-sweetened coffee in its very long and nicely layered flavors. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (4/2006)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Massive and tannic, and dry to the point of astringency, all this Cab needs is a decade or so to come around. The tannins are bigtime, locking the wine down, but there's a solid core of blackberry and cassis fruit. Once the wine has aged, the sweet fruit will emerge. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (4/2006)

K&L Notes

Allow this savory, multifaceted wine to open up...first in the glass, then on your tongue and discover the treasures it has to offer. Aromas of berries, brown sugar, and dense dark chocolate evolve in the mouth into a flavor array that includes dark berries, black fruits, and rosemary. The soft grip carries all the way through the long, satisfying finish.
