Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92
In a vintage such as 2010 where individual terroirs are so clearly marked, the Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cask 23 - a blend of the SLV and Fay - is at a distinct disadvantage because it naturally lacks the character and personality of those two wines. I must also note that the SLV and Fay have improved dramatically on their own terms, so the rationale of blending them is further diminished. To be sure the Cask 23 is an excellent representation of the vintage. There is plenty of 2010 fruit, structure and tannin, along with attractive hints of smoke, tar and incense, but at the end of the day, I find the Cask 23 less satisfying than Stags' Leap Wine Cellars' very best wines. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

Wine Tasting Notes
The Stag's Leap Cellars Cask 23 Napa Cabernet combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and dark fruit of S.L.V. The wine opens with a rich berry medley and silky, layered aromas of dates, cocoa spice, cassis, black olive, and pomegranate. The palate is full in structure, yet balanced and persistent with a lush texture. Flavors of currant, dark cherry, and spice linger on the finish. Enjoy this CASK 23 with red wine braised Osso Buco & wild mushroom risotto, green olive crusted lamb rack with fennel & couscous or New York steak au poivre with honey & sherry glazed shallots.
