The flagship wine the 2007 Cask 23 Estate is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and production is usually between 1500-1600 cases. Displaying finesse power and measured restraint this deep dark plum/purple-tinged 2007 reveals notes of black currants Asian spices sweet plums Christmas fruitcake and cedar. This medium to full-bodied delicate but substantial beauty should be consumed over the next 12-15 years.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in mostly new French oak this is a very elaborate wine. It's quite good a full-bodied powerful Cab with a molten core of blackberries and black currants and of course a thick dry layer of firm tannins. It does not seem to have quite the depth of vintages from certain earlier vintages but it should develop nicely in the cellar over the next decade or longer. S.H.

Winery

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Founded in 1970, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is the winery which won the Cabernet Sauvignon competition in the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris.

The Stag’s Leap Vineyard (S.L.V.) was planted in 1970 on soils predominantly volcanic in nature and contribute multi-layered structure, concentration and spicy intensity - often referred to as the “fire” elements. This vineyard produces wines with complex black fruit and berry character, excellent structure and complexity, promising long life and ageability. Today, the property includes roughly 35 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.5 acres of Merlot.

The Fay Vineyard adjoins the S.L.V. and is where the story of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars began. Established by pioneering grape-grower Nathan Fay in 1961, it was the first planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in what is now the Stags Leap District. The vineyard was purchased by the winery in 1986 and named in his honor.

Fay’s soils, more alluvial in makeup, yield more of the “water” elements of softness, perfume, and rich berry qualities. It produces fruit with an abundance of supple red and black berry character, voluptuous perfume and a luscious, fine-grained texture. The 66-acre vineyard is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon with a half-acre of Petit Verdot.
