Cabernet Sauvignon

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, SLV Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

RRP Av £99

Lovely perfumed sloe and damson nose. This is superbly flavoured, old cedar wood slightly scented, violets. Great structure with coated tannins and a lovely dusty tannic finish. This is absolutely ready but will be wonderful for at least another five years, and then start its long, long descent into fine old age
