Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The 2018 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and dark fruit of S.L.V. The wine opens with complex and expressive aromas of dark fruits, currants and figs along with hints of floral spice, sandalwood and wet stone. The wine has a vibrant taste and texture with the winery’s classic “Peacock’s Tail” that expands in the mouth and leads to a lingering aftertaste and finish.

 

Enjoy this CASK 23 with chicken marsala, grilled flank steak with plum salsa, or spiced duck breast with wilted arugula risotto.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Mar 31, 2022 - Rated 95:
Delivers a lot to like, with a violet thread amid a mix of cassis, plum reduction and blackberry puree flavors, all stitched with light alder, singed vanilla and tobacco notes. Features very light iron and cassis bush notes that curl around the finish, adding subtle tension to the seductive, friendly fruit. Very suave. Best from 2024 through 2040. 2,550 cases made. — JM

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 5/1/2022 - Rated 98:
An exceptional blend of the famous Fay Estate and SLV Estate, this wine dates back to the 1970s and is spectacular in this vintage. Juicy, bright and effusive, it offers a lightness of spice, well-integrated oak and a cohesive, silky texture. Structured, it shows dark-berry fruit, a hint of crushed rock and fig, expansive on the palate. This should age beautifully; enjoy best from 2028 through 2038. - VIRGINIE BOONE
