2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis  (Napa Valley) 89

Showing a bit too much oak toady that dominates the sweet, ripe, black cherry and licorice notes. Soft, forward and easy to drink, there is a bit of dusty tannins in the finish.

2010 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Fay  (Napa Valley) 91

A little better than the last time I tasted its fresh, black raspberry and dark chocolate sensation. The wie is sweet, soft, polished, open and ready for prime time, finishing with a hint of dust in the tannins.

Bright, medium bodied, firm, structured and fresh, with more red fruits than black, dusty tannins and a cherry tinged finish is probably best if its enjoyed in its first decade of life.

1991 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23  (Stags Leap District) 94

A beautiful example of an aged, California Cabernet Sauvignon with all the trimmings. Interesting aromatically, full-bodied and with a depth of flavor from start to finish, the ripe, earthy, sweet blackberry and thyme filled finish with just a bit of dust in the tannins really hit the spot.

1985 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23  (Stags Leap District) 92

Medium bodied, and more about its finesse and elegance than power, the wine displays sweetness and purity to its fresh, cherry and plum fruits. Slightly past fully mature, there is no reason to hold this any longer.

Whoa Mr. Ed. My first whiff had enough barnyard aromas to choke a horse, or at least to stable one. Add incense, earth, truffle, smoke, dirt and black cherry to an idea of where this wine is coming from. There was a touch of dryness in the cassis, cranberry and cherry filled finish. I’ve had better bottles of this in the past. I think this wine has started to drop its fruit and requires consumption.

1978 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaker Series Lot 2  (Stags Leap District) 86

Past its prime, the medium bodied, earthy, wine is clearly fading, leaving you with more tart, cranberry fruits than I prefer. Historically interesting, but not much pleasure remaining. Drink up.
