Creamy and seductive with ripe currant mocha mineral and espresso notes that are full-bodied and complex. Long on the finishending with excellent structure. Drink now through 2018.-J.L.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap is a nearly 9000-case cuvee that is one of the best Cabernet Sauvignons one can buy at this price point particularly given the Shangri-La prices of Napa. Deep ruby/purple with lots of red and black currants as well as hints of spring flowers and bay leaf the wine is medium-bodied with nothing out of place - acidity wood tannin or alcohol. It is a supple stylish wine that doesn-t cheat the consumer on flavor or complexity. It should evolve for at least 15 or so years.One of the new up-and-coming wineries in Stags Leap is Cliff Lede run by the proprietor of the same name and his winemaker Michelle Edwards. (None other than superstar David Abreu is the viticulturalist and this is another place where Michel Rolland makes his semi-annual stop for consulting purposes.) 2006 turned out to be very successful for the wines of Cliff Lede all displaying the elegance one expects from the Stags Leap region but with substantial flavors as well as intensity.

Rich dense fruit aromas swarming from the glass. Dark plum cassis and blackberry surrounded by chocolate caramel cinnamon and nutmeg spices a touch of coconut and a light violet lift. Silky entry in the mouth building quickly into a full bodied wine. A big mid-palate with lots of ripe tannins. A thick core of plum black cherry and cassis fruit is accented by baker's chocolate and spicy cinnamon with a touch of chalk in the finish. You can drink this now but it will easily improve in the bottle and last another decade or more.
