2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Armillary Cabernet Sauvignon
Man, this one is BIG! I received this bottle of 2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Armillary Cabernet Sauvignon last week and let it rest a few days before tasting. Tasted over two days, this initially tossed around aromas of plum, leather, cedar, menthol and a touch of sage again big, rich tannins and a lingering finish. Despite the 15%+ alcohol content, this wasn't hot at all. In fact, it was beautifully made and a real pleasure to drink. I was lucky enough to have some of this to taste a second night with a chicken pasta dish that I make regularly and the pairing was spot on. The wine was more Bing cherry, cocoa powder and tea leaves with saddle leather and neither the pasta or wine overpowered each other. I absolutely adore a 100% Cabernet that is completely mouth-coating as this one and if you're looking for an amazing wine to share with friends, this is your huckleberry!
