2003 Rombauer Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, CA $90 – Rating 95
One of Rombauer’s small production (400 cases) single vineyard AVA Cabernets. Extremely approachable now and drinking beautifully after a short decant. This is a truly elegant, well balanced wine with a very supple and velvety tannin structure. Lot of dark fruit and berry flavors accented with a touch of toffee and hint of pepper. The wine paired very well with the roast we served. However, it is big enough to command your attention by itself. Available only at the Rombauer Vineyards tasting room or online at Rombauer.com.
