2014 Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve had great deals on Cliff Lede Cab before but this one really takes the cake. Always delicious but often a “splurge” wine, how can you resist it at this price? The blend on the 2014 is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot.

This is a blend of grapes from a variety of owner Cliff Lede’s “Rock Blocks”, each of which is named after one of Cliff’s favorite Albums. The grapes from vineyards like “My Generation” & “Dark Side of the Moon” are joined together to make a beautiful harmony in the heart of the Stag’s Leap District.

These will be in stock on Thursday. Who knows when we’ll see a price like this again.


Winermaker’s Notes: “Dark purple with vermillion-tinged edges, the plush and refreshing 2014 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon lures the taster with a multidimensional perfume that fills the glass with notes of jasmine, lavender, and spring flowers. Interwoven into the floral notes are unctuous layers of plum, blackberry, and black currants. Loads of smoked cardamom, cinnamon, and black licorice unwind onto the palate where the vibrant acidity carries the long finish to a state of balance and equilibrium.”

93 Points Robert Parker: “This is just a stunner. Dense purple in color, it has a beautiful nose of spring flowers, black currants, subtle background oak and licorice and a long, opulent mouthfeel. This is a beauty that can be drunk now or cellared for another 15 more years. It is a heck of a wine and irresistible.”
