Another amazingly youthful wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Leap, meant for 25-30+ years of longevity. Opaque purple, with loads of blueberry, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, some licorice, smoke and graphite, the wine has terrific intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish. Give it 4-5 years and drink it over the following 25.

Drink Date: 2020 – 2045

From the Stags Leap website: The 2013 The Leap Cabernet Sauvignon captures the distinctive personality of our estate vineyard offering a multilayered mouthfeel and deep, pure flavors of blackberry, black plum, blueberry, cassis and cocoa.
