In a nutshell:
A very food friendly Napa Valley blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Even in the august Napa Valley Stag's Leap is one of the most illustrious names of all and the quality of their pedigree is there to see across all the wines they make. Their Hands of Time red blend in 2014 comprised around two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and a third Merlot. It was an excellent vintage, for the third year in a row, and yielded high quality, ripe fruit with elegant tannins. After vinification it was aged for 21 months in mostly French oak and the result is a wine with aromas and flavours of wild berries and cherry blossom with hints of sage, clove and cocoa powder. On the palate the bright red cherry flavours carry through and blend excellently into the silky smooth tannins which show well on the long and supple finish.
When to drink:
With a warm and spicy core it'll pair excellently with roasts, or prime cuts of grilled or barbecued meat.
