2017 Cliff Lede ‘Poetry’ Cabernet Sauvignon Stag’s Leap

In stock

A classically made Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillside of Stag’s Leap. Think Bohemian Rhapsody here; lovely entrance of subtle nuance and elegance with bombastic and rich density that excites every sense. Aromas red raspberries, ripe blueberry, cedar chest and pipe tobacco. The palate is firm, layered and most importantly; finishes long with a velvet mouthfeel. This nearly perfect wine belongs center stage.

Cliff Lede Vineyards was established in 2002 by Canadian born Bordeaux enthusiast, Cliff Lede, following the acquisition of a sixty acre estate in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. With a focus on producing wines from estate vineyards, Lede tapped David Abreu, considered the best viticulturist in Napa Valley, to replant the vineyards. Lede decided to name each vineyard block after some of his favorite rock songs and albums—from “My Generation” to “Dark Side of the Moon,” creating what is known today as the Cliff Lede Vineyards “Rock Blocks.” In 2005, a state of the art, 25,000 square foot winery and cave system was etched into a hillside overlooking the estate vineyards. Not only did Cliff create a beautiful property, he also assembled an unrivaled team that shares his passion for quality. Today, Winemaker Christopher Tynan crafts Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, with the flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the steep eastern hillside portion of the estate. In 2015, Cliff Lede Vineyards achieved both Napa Green Land and Napa Green Winery certification.
