Description

""Lot 404 2010 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon final blend is elevated with small lots of Atlas Peak Cabernet and Calistoga Petit Verdot, and spent 18 months aging in 100% French oak barrels. I have been sourcing wine from Stags Leap for a few years now and work with quite a few growers and producers in this pedigreed appellation. The wine for Lot 404 was assembled from the same vineyards as Lot 189 (92 points Wine Enthusiast). I am confident that this stunning wine will excite you - she is elegant, sophisticated, and incredibly powerful. The best metaphor is a sailing one - well appointed and glorious. Lot 404 combines power and elegance in a divinely proportioned wine. It features a pure bouquet with beautiful liquid minerality, hints of graphite, and exotic spice punctuating black fruit essence. A package that is just beginning to unwind. In a word, ethereal. Across the palate this wine shows real 'sap' (or what the French would call 'sucrosite') and a silky texture that contrasts blackberry essence and a spine of fine-grained and succulent tannins." -Winery
