I know you all are looking for lavish, rich, and stylish Cabs for the holidays, and I present you with a very fine offer today. What I love about Cliff Lede's 2019 SLD Cab is that it is RIPE and READY. Translated, while this certainly has 10-15 years of cellar potential, it's delivering the goods already.

Stags Leap Cabs are some of the most sought after in the Valley, and to be able to get a 95 pointer for less than $100 is no easy feat. Part of what makes this such a great value is that the estate is fairly new. Founded in 2002 by Canadian-born wine enthusiast Cliff Lede, it is an estate that a lot of wine lovers are talking about. Unfortunately, I doubt this will be less than $100 for much longer....

Like all great Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignons, this one combines grace and elegance with power and structure. Offering up a core of ripe red and dark berries, cigar tobacco, dark chocolate, spice box, and graphite, this full-bodied, elegant effort offers up fine-grained tannins and lifted acidity. 

Jeb Dunnuck described this one perfectly. "I loved the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, and readers looking for a great Napa Valley Cabernet under $100 shouldn't hesitate. Deep purple-hued, with classic Cabernet dark red and black fruits, leafy tobacco, chocolate, and graphite, it's medium to full-bodied, has a pure, elegant mouthfeel, integrated acidity, and polished tannins. It's already impossible to resist yet will cruise for 10-15 years in cold cellars."

So there you go, the perfect Napa Cab for the holidays. Just 60 bottles up for grabs. Treat yourself or the wine lover in your life, but don't wait too long to place your order.
