2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1325001 92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014s are not yet in bottle. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. Estate-Grown has a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis, licorice and spring flowers. It is full-bodied, opulent and not far off the high standard achieved by the 2013. This is a full-bodied, voluptuous wine that should drink beautifully for the next 20-25 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

92-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A wine of raw, intense power, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. is incredibly promising. Tasted from barrel before bottling, the 2014 opens with a beguiling mélange of dark stone fruit, violet, lavender, licorice and menthol. Beams of supporting tannin give the S.L.V. its energy and vertical sense of proportion. Today, the 2014 looks like it will be slow to come around. All the elements are in place for the 2014 S.L.V. to be a more than worth follow up to the epic 2013. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark It's the elegance and charm of this celebrated wine that is immediately striking, on both nose and palate. There are pure blackcurrant aromas, with a whiff of red fruits too. It's sleek and very concentrated, but also fresh and zesty, with excellent balance and persistence. It expresses Napa richness but with a light touch. (SB) Inner quote mark

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of iron and terracotta buttress the currant and spice character here. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a subtle finish. Tightly wound now — needing at least three to four years of bottle age. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The rocky soils at the Stag’s Leap Vineyard produced a 2014 cabernet with fresh cut to its rich black fruit. Oak dominates the wine until air begins to bring out the detail, taking it toward vinous scents, along with notes of conifer and eucalyptus that add to the breezy freshness. For the cellar. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Estate-grown, this wine is juicy and expansive, with an approachability that makes it instantly pleasing on the palate. Black currant, graphite and dark-chocolate flavors meet brushy dried herb and toasted oak, integrating into a lengthy finish. (VB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Presents a harmonious mix of supple dark berry, licorice, spice, cedar, mocha and gravelly earth notes, maintaining a persistent push on the finish, where the flavors are delicate. Best from 2020 through 2030. (JL, Web only-2017) Inner quote mark
