2012 Stags' Leap Winery "The Leap" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1292872 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really wonderful with complex aromas of blackberries, slate, fresh herb and sweet tobacco that follows through to a full body, integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Better in 2018 but so excellent now. Inner quote mark (1/2016)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate The Leap was aged 20 months in 50% new French oak. This is a beautiful wine, offering up an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of floral-infused blackberries and blueberries, as well as cassis. This is a wine of great intensity, with a multilayered mouthfeel and deep, pure richness. This stunner should drink well for 20-25 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Few wines capture the volcanic intensity of the Palisades as well as this grand Stags Leap District Cabernet. Christophe Paubert selects it from the best barrels in his cellar, sourced from the top parcels at the estate, with vineyards tucked into the folds of the Stags Leap escarpment at the western edge of the Napa Valley. Decant a bottle to take it from the initial rusticity of its earthbound tannins and cherry liqueur fruit. An hour later, it will be savory and fresh. And, over the course of dinner, the layers of earthy spice may gain in gravity as the floral notes of raspberry-scented fruit pull in a brighter, sunnier direction. Pretty great right now, this should only get better with age. Inner quote mark (4/2016)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sees 20 months in 100% French oak, half of it new. This wine has lovely cassis and red cranberry notes at its core, while accents of earth, leather, oak and cedar give it a classic feel. Sizable, dry tannins should integrate with the bright fruit and minerality over time, through 2020. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (6/2015)
