Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon SLV 2018

18 units available online.
Product description
The 2018 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon has generous aromas of violet, plum dark fruit, cocoa dust and graphite. On the palate the wine has a rich, gravelly structure with pure fruit, dusty tannins and a long, savory finish. The tannin structure, dark fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine’s ability to age.

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V., a barrel sample, reveals a deep garnet-purple colour and expressive notions of blackberry preserves, black cherry coulis and warm cassis with suggestions of eucalyptus, dark chocolate, lavender and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tightly wound with black fruit and savoury layers, supported by a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and lifted.

97 Points - James Suckling    This is one of the best SLVs I have tasted with total balance and structure that highlights what was possible in 2018. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and poised, with layer upon layer of fine tannins that give depth and beauty to this young red. Blackcurrant, blueberry and floral flavours.

94 Points - Wine Spectator    Polished and open at first, showing a fan-friendly set of creamed plum and warmed cassis flavors, laced with melted licorice and sweet toast accents. Features alder and warm earth hints that check in on the finish, adding extra range and length while giving the fruit a grounded feel in the end. Very solidly built. Drink now through 2038.
