Cosimo Commisso sheds some light on the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, one of his preferred wineries in the Napa Valley region.
Cocoa powder, wild blackberries and currants burst from this plush wine, which pairs beautifully with coffee-marinated wagyu beef with a fig glaze. The undertones of dark blueberry, wild berry and hints of spice make this 100 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon an even more thoughtful experience, evoking warmth and instilling serenity while you dine.
Beyond its distinctive characteristics — having been derived from the Napa Valley appellation and aged for 21 months in 100 per cent new French oak — this Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is a reflection of the acclaimed winery that created it. Stag’s Leap was established in 1969 and has since become a Napa Valley favourite, not only for its stellar wines but also for the architectural beauty of the estate. I highly recommend stopping by Stag’s Leap for a wine tasting and tour next time you’re in the area — it’s an experience that’s as inspiring as it is delicious.
