Stag's Leap Wine Cellars S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
Wine AdvocateThe estate's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate SLV emerges from a parcel next to Fay, but here the terrain is much richer in stones and therefore traps the daytime heat to a far greater extent. Ash, smoke, slate, plums and blackberries are some of the many notes that burst from the glass. The SLV is a big, tannic wine, especially in this vintage. There is more than enough tension and sheer energy to allow for years of great drinking, once the wine softens a bit. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
Wine SpectatorDelivers a tight, firm beam of currant, dried berry, herb and anise, with light cedar shadings. Gains on the finish, revealing snappy berry flavors. The better of two bottles tasted. Best from 2014 through 2024. 2,518 cases made.
