The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and dark, with an abundance of blackberry, cherry and dark plum alongside flavors of sweet vanilla and a hint of olive. approachable and pleasing upon release, this wine is sure to dazzle and pair well alongside many culinary treats. It is a wine deserving a special place in the history of Napa wine.
Food Pairing: Stag’s Leap is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, roast chicken, ribs, barbecue, roasted, braised, grilled dishes and stews. Stags Leap Wine Cellars is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, and salmon.
Below is one recommended dish that pairs beautifully with the Stag’s Leaf:
Steak au poivre with Cognac sauce. Traditionally this dish is made with a filet mignon, which allows for the richness of the sauce to shine. A sauce of Cognac, cream, butter, and shallots, for example, provides a nice base for the wine, and the pepper reduces the perception of tannin.
