10 cases available! Time In The Bottle. Wizardry Of Celia Welch
Welch crafted a gorgeous 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon for Lindstrom. Classy and
polished, the 2015 definitely reflects the ripeness of the vintage, and yet all
the elements are very nicely balanced. Floral notes add an attractive upper
register to this mid-weight Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. There is more than
enough depth to the racy red and purplish berry fruit to support at least a
handful of years of fine drinking.
Stags Leap District wine shows its heritage in the pronounced dark cherry and
mocha notes which dominate both the aromas and the entry, as well as the
signature soft tannins juxtaposed against a very solid, substantial mid-palate.
The flavor intensity, the concentration in the mid-palate, and the duration of
the finish all hint at the very rocky soils upon which these vines are grown.
Despite its concentration, however, the wine shows accessibility and the
character of sweet cherries and blueberries at the finish. While this Cabernet
will unquestionably age well, even at first release it shows its charm.
