The Elders is our signature Cabernet Sauvignon and showcases the oldest and most precious blocks from our family ranch. Through five generations, we remain the oldest farming family in the Stags Leap District and named this wine “The Elders” as a tribute to our ancestors.
On the nose the 2014 Elders unveils notes of cassis, vanilla, smoke and just a touch cinnamon. This wine is classic Stags Leap District Cab. On the palate it has great complexity with layers of dark, macerated Luxardo cherries, dark chocolate ganache, pencil shaving and bbq spice rub. The bold tannins are very approachable and well defined with great integration, showcasing great density and a firm yet smooth finish.
This estate-grown and produced Cabernet Sauvignon represents the purest expression of one of Napa Valley’s most revered vineyards.
