2020 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2020 Malk Family Vineyards’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully extracted Stags Leap offering, an example of both the vineyard and the appellation. There are the noted characteristics of the Griffin vineyard: dark blackberry, chocolate-cherry, star anise, nutmeg spice, and rich cassis aromas; and this 2020 has a particularly wonderful concentration…not in terms of structure, but in terms of weight and palate presence. Of course, the wine is cellar-worthy, but we are enjoying this wine now. It’s perfect for the next cold night and hearty meal.
