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