Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 2013 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon Etched 3L Bottle
2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of the historic “Judgment of Paris” tasting at which the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon took top honors among the red wines, triumphing over two first-growth and other renowned wines of Bordeaux. The story of The Judgment of Paris brought international recognition to Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, the Napa Valley and the American wine industry as a whole.
S.L.V., also known as Stag’s Leap Vineyards, is the winery’s first vineyard and was planted in 1970. The 1973 S.L.V. that won the Paris Tasting was crafted from just three-year-old vines. Today, this history-making vineyard continues to produce wines with layers of complexity, spicy intensity and excellent structure—promising long life and ageability.
The 2013 S.L.V. offers intriguing aromas of dark chocolate, currant, date, licorice and baking spice. The wine is full bodied with layered, complex flavors of black currant, wild berry, graphite and vanilla that lead to a bold, yet silky finish. The wine’s structured tannins, rich fruit, and pleasing minerality point to this wine’s ability to age. Rated 96 points - The Wine Advocate
