This is a fresh, juicy wine with well-delineated blueberry and blackberry flavors buoyed by fresh herbs and a touch of spice. The oak is seamlessly integrated, showcasing rather than masking the fruit, and the tannins are reactive without being aggressive. Long on fruit, this is a coherent, focused and bright Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Leap is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the finest blocks in our Stags’ Leap Winery estate vineyard. This singular expanse of earth tucked up against the eastern palisades of Napa Valley features thin, rocky soils in its upper reaches, giving way to finer-grained loamy soils at its floor. The heat-reflecting rocky crags that tower above the estate combine with cooling breezes from the south to create a micro-climate phenomenally well-suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes of distinction.
