Lot #219. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 RP.
"The Cabernet Sauvignon-Cask 23 continues to display one of the most distinctive and exotic bouquets of any California Cabernet-based wine. The 1985 Cask 23 remains an awesome bottle of wine. The dense, impressive, dark ruby/garnet color has the appearance of a highly extracted wine. The nose seems to create an overload on one's olfactory senses. An extraordinary bouquet of coffee, chocolate, black fruits, cedar, hickory smoke, and super-ripe Damson plums roars from the glass. The wine has a voluptuous texture as well as extraordinary concentration and depth. These attributes only serve to partially hide the considerable tannins in the finish. The overall impression is one of profound flavors, awesome extract and flavor dimension. This wine will continue to age well . . ." Wine Advocate #89, Oct 1993
Provenance: The Moineau Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, lightly damp stained, lightly faded, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $375
