2016 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1426627 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The deep purple-black colored barrel sample of 2016 Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon features compelling, youthful notes of freshly crushed red and black currants, black cherries, kirsch and mocha with nuances of Marmite toast, roasted nuts, underbrush and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a very firm frame of super ripe tannins supporting the multilayered flavors, finishing on an epically long, lingering fragrant earth note. Beautiful. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Shows extremely complex aromas of blackberries and currants with pine needles and black olives. Subtle, yet complete on the nose. Full body, extremely fine tannins and good balance. Very long and caressing on the finish. Goes on for a long time. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 is powerful and savory in the glass, with tons of both aromatic nuance and supporting structure that give the wine gravitas as well as a very clear sense of direction. The plum, blackberry jam, grilled herb, lavender and dark spice notes are all very finely drawn in this big but polished Cabernet Sauvignon from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. (AG) 95+ Inner quote mark (12/2018)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This gorgeous wine combines the best of two historic vineyards—Fay and S.L.V.—into one cohesive, refined whole. A soft entry of woody spice and toasted oak leads the way to an expansive midpalate of currant, crushed rock, dried herb and elegant tannins begging for further time in the bottle. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)
