Stags' Leap Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $42.49-$59.99, 93 points, poured almost core black grading burgundy purple/red toward the leggy glass wall and clear wine ring.
Aromas of fall leaves, sandalwood, cedar, and blackberries with hints of chocolate and black currants were delightful.
This smooth near full-bodied Cab with good acidity and firm/fine tannins supported flavors that mirrored the aromas plus a kiss of black cherry and cola.
Finished long on the trailing palate, anise, plum, warm spices and a most reasonable 14.1% alcohol.
Stags' Leap was a good pairing with my spaghetti and meatballs.
