“ Aromas of blackcurrants, dried sage, rosemary and dried roses. Full-bodied with silky, slightly tight tannins. A hint of wet-mineral character gives lovely transparency to the fruit. Lead-pencil notes, too. Concentrated, but not overdone. Long and rather seamless. Best after 2025.” - James Suckling, June 1, 2022
Winemaker Christophe Paubert has always admired the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from Coombsville for its concentration and fresh aromatics, referring to it as “the Pauillac” of Napa Valley. Year after year the appellation yields some of the most concentrated and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, and the 2012 vintage marked the inaugural release of this small-lot bottling. This wine captures a pure expression of Napa’s southeastern corner and its unique elevation and cooler terroir. Most of the blend comes from Garvey Vineyard, and long-standing relationships with some of the most highly regarded growers in Coombsville, ensure this wine exemplifies the excellent structure, concentrated fresh flavors and significant tannins of this celebrated appellation.
For Christophe Paubert, Winemaker and General Manager at Stags’ Leap Winery, the identity of a wine is found through the terroir. Christophe’s career has spanned the industry from sales to winemaking, and his impressive background includes positions at Chateau d’Yquem and Gruaud-Larose as well as projects in Chile, Spain and Washington State. But it was the terroir of Stags’ Leap that drew him to California.
