2018 Stags' Leap Winery 125th Anniversary Special Edition Cabernet Sauvignon
95 Points, James Suckling:
"A very pretty Cabernet with very fine tannins that are polished and fresh. Beautiful currant, chocolate and walnut character. Medium to full body and a long, caressing finish. Builds beautifully at the end. So delicious now, but will develop nicely in bottle. Real 2018 character. Top vintage." (6/2021)
A tribute to our 125th anniversary, this 2018 vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is specially labeled to honor and commemorate this significant milestone. The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2018 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2018 wines are of very high quality with lower alcohol, concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity.
