"The 2014s are not yet in bottle. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. Estate-Grown has a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis, licorice and spring flowers. It is full-bodied, opulent and not far off the high standard achieved by the 2013. This is a full-bodied, voluptuous wine that should drink beautifully for the next 20-25 years."

"A wine of raw, intense power, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. is incredibly promising. Tasted from barrel before bottling, the 2014 opens with a beguiling mélange of dark stone fruit, violet, lavender, licorice and menthol. Beams of supporting tannin give the S.L.V. its energy and vertical sense of proportion. Today, the 2014 looks like it will be slow to come around. All the elements are in place for the 2014 S.L.V. to be a more than worth follow up to the epic 2013."
"S.L.V., also known as Stag’s Leap Vineyards, is the winery’s first vineyard. Planted in 1970, this vineyard achieved international fame when threeyear-old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that stunned the wine world when it bested some of France’s greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the “Judgment of Paris.” Today, this history-making vineyard continues to produce wines with layers of complexity, spicy intensity and excellent structure—promising long life and ageability." -Winery
