About Our Ratings

Cask 23 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
Perhaps the most iconic of all Napa Valley wines Cask 23 is the evolution of the wine that took the world by storm, beating out the great First Growth Bordeaux in the famous Judgment in Paris Tasting in May 1976. A clear measure of it's status, Cask 23 was the first Napa Valley Cab to break the $100 retail price point as dozens of course have since followed. This 2012 is a classic; a tale of two vineyards that come together in a harmonious blend. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was sourced equally from the FAY and S.L.V. vineyards, specific blocks within these adjoining ranches providing distinct attributes to the wine. Each lot was vinified and aged separately in small French oak barrels for 21 months. In the latter stages of aging the lots were blended, becoming CASK 23. Robert Parker scored this wine 96 and said "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 reveals more oak on the nose, but is a much deeper, richer, fuller wine than the S.L.V. Dense ruby/purple to the rim, beautiful blackberry and cassis fruit, cedar wood, toast and earth jump from the glass. Full-bodied and layered, but with nothing out of balance, this is probably the strongest Cask 23 since the glory years of the mid-80s. Look for this wine to drink well young, yet age effortlessly for 25 years."
