Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2014 | Exclusive $100+ wine for $32
The essence of the Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2014 is a success story. Our mission: providing clients with a bold, pedigreed Napa Cabernet exceeding what anyone thought was possible for under $32/bottle.
Opaque purple-black in color, with lavish aromas of crushed blackberry, black raspberry, graphite, and tobacco. Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2014 hints at LOTS of new-wood cedar. While big, bold, and ultra-concentrated on the attack. While filled with a voluptuous mix of crushed-black-fruit preserves, sweet crème de cassis, and a dash of framboise liqueur. And finishing with firm tannins that argue powerfully for 10-15 years of cellar slumber.
About the 2014 Napa Vintage
After Robert Parker released his report on the stellar 2012, 2013, 2014 Napa vintages, awarding a record number of 96-100-point scores, while the market for Cabernet was anything but buyer-friendly. To find fruit that met our standards we made trips to over 20 wineries. Finally, we found what we were looking for in majestic Stags Leap. The juice was plush, loaded with black fruit and subtle hints of cocoa. Had the wine been bottled at the estate where it was grown, the price would have been $100/bottle.
Lay it down then reap the rewards
While we can’t state the exact name or location of our source (an NDA has our lips sealed), we can say that our 8-barrel lot was purchased in December of 2015 from one of the most revered estates in Stags Leap — a short clip down the Silverado Trail from the legendary Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. We then commissioned one of the most respected enologists in the valley (previously of Jordan and Peter Michael) to oversee racking, filtering, and bottling.
It wasn’t easy to find a way around the inflation that Parker’s report spurred in Napa. Yet we deliver a lavish, massively concentrated yet elegant Karo-Kann Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap 2014 that far over-delivers on price.
