Score: 95 Country: California Region: Napa Issue: Sep 15, 1996 Aromatically complex, with lots of exotic spice, currant, mineral and herbal scents–and an array of flavors to match. A young, vibrant wine, impressive for its sweet concentration and complexity.–Cabernet Challenge. 1,000 cases made. JL Wine Advocate #89 Oct 1993 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 91 The 1990 Cask 23 exhibits a tell-tale bouquet of sweet, jammy cassis, herbs, coffee, olives, cedar, and chocolate. The Cask 23 always offers one of the most complex and enticing Cabernet-based bouquets in California. Soft, medium to full-bodied, harmonious flavors, with well-integrated tannin and low acidity make for a generous, velvety-textured mouthful of classically proportioned, compelling Cabernet. Like most of the finest vintages of Cask 23, it is delicious young, but possesses the cunning ability to age effortlessly for 20 Years and more . The flagship wine of Stags Leap is Cask 23 (1000 cases produced each vintage), now officially a proprietary red wine with the words Cabernet Sauvignon dropped from the label. No Cask 23 was produced in 1988 or 1989, but the 1990 is gorgeous. The Cabernet Sauvignon-Cask 23 continues to display one of the most distinctive and exotic bouquets of any California Cabernet-based wine. Proprietor Warren Winiarski produces Cabernet Sauvignons of uncommon delicacy, complexity, and harmony. Although this property went into a slump from 1979-1983, there have been no misses since.
