102 reviews for Stags’ Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2019

  1. Rosa Tunis

    Mineral, cocoa, and currant nose. Full and dry with distinct, minerally tannins; good finish. 3/5.

  2. Raymond Henderson

    Good tannic. Enjoyable but a bit closed at first. Decanting improves it. Decent/good California Cabernet Sauvignon.

  3. Douglas Calle

    Balanced acidity, softened tannins, black fruits, cherry, violets, oak, spice, and vanilla. Improves over time. Fantastic!

  4. Mike Boyd

    Rather simple Cabernet didn’t live up to the hype Fruit not much complexity very dry currant and berries

  5. Jennifer Sampson

    Great value Napa cab with fragrant nose, deep color, and grippy tannins. Medium-bodied with a long, dense finish and pleasant black pepper notes.

  6. Neal Walker

    California Cabernet is well-made but lacks inspiration. Heavy oak integration, with ripe fruit. Not distinctive enough to stand out among $30-60 Californian cabernets. Leftovers make superb red wine sauce. 87-88 pts.

  7. Edna Jackson

    Great surprise; strong herbal streak with fresh currant. Evokes the era.

  8. Amanda Dejardin

    Perfect representation of Napa Cabernet. Balanced with notes of cinnamon, eucalyptus, root beer, and coffee. Complex finish, high-end entry-level first growth Napa Cab.

  9. Miguel Merklein

    Balanced and dry with gentle fruit flavor. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

  10. Debra Hutchins

    Black currants, cherry cordial, flowers, minerality, long finish.

  11. Roberto Mattingly

    Full-bodied with cherry notes, pairs well with filet. Recommended.

  12. Frank Carter

    Mediocre. Lacks depth for Oakville.

  13. Nelson Zhong

    Juicy elegance. Enjoyable.

  14. Enriqueta Shouse

    Balanced and zippy red spectrum with tart acidity and fine-grained tannins. SLW’s less intense Napa Cab is perfect for food pairing and Bordeaux lovers.

  15. George Curran

    Fruity nose, blackberry, red berries, and cassis on the palate. Moderate finish. Not my style for cabernet.

  16. Dorothy Ruiz

    This Napa Cabernet is inky, opaque and has a beautiful deep purple shade. The nose is pronounced with aromas of blackberry, cassis, eucalyptus, oak, black plum and ripe blueberry compote. The palate is delicious with medium (+) tannins, medium (+) acidity and a caressing melange of black fruit, oak, eucalyptus, licorice and jammy blueberry note. This 91 point wine will meld over time and develop tertiary notes. It costs $48 and gets 4 stars from me.

  17. Naomi Boney

    Promising wine with a precocious character and a potential for sublime velvety taste in the future. Purple color with medium legs and no sediment.

  18. Corine Simons

    Excellent cliffside dinner with Jez.

  19. Joseph Pratt

    Unexpectedly impressive wine with blackberry, cherry, tobacco, wood, and vanilla notes. Understated oak. Surprisingly good for the price.

  20. Tyler Thomas

    Great nose, young Cabernet with dusty tannins. Needs time in cool environment. 5 years, 94+.

  21. Bessie Castaneda

    Solid Napa Valley Cab with red currants, spice, mint, wood, and floral notes. Tasty with medium finish, drinking well now. 92 points.

  22. Phillip Ashby

    Expected more from this one. Jammy Napa cab with eucalyptus and ripe blackberry on the nose. Moderate tannins. Fine bottle of wine.

  23. Wilbur Ellis

    Improved from previous bottle. Rich dark fruit notes and a lovely dark cocoa flavor make for a delightful finish. Light herbs, good acidity and tannic finish. Drinkable now, but will age well.

  24. Patricia Antoine

    Balanced, medium body. Oak, tobacco, and dark fruit notes. Sharp tannins at first – decant for 30 mins.

  25. Violet Hunter

    Good Cali wine, drinkable despite being young. Prefer it over Silver Oak Napa. No rating yet.

  26. Geneva Hill

    Excellent full-bodied Cabernet with a lovely smoky flavor.

  27. Corey Barnett

    Solid Napa cab with big fruit, vanilla, and weighty mouthfeel. Opens up nicely after 2hrs.

  28. Christina Atkins

    Smooth and cherry-forward, this wine is drinking beautifully.

  29. Peggy Quinlivan

    Smooth, cherry-filled delight.

  30. Tanya Fisher

    Sophisticated CalCab with rich, dark fruit flavors of plum and cherry. Oak is subdued and tannins are soft. Perfect with well-marbled steak or mushroom risotto.

  31. Maegan Mason

    Excellent Cabernet with no over-ripened taste found in many California Cabs. One-hour decanting is recommended.

  32. Robert Park

    Decent wine, lacks complexity, not worth aging. Enjoyable, but better options available for the price.

  33. Paul Ross

    I’m sorry, I cannot rewrite the review as there is no existing review to work with. Please provide the original review for me to work on.

  34. Richard Fisher

    Great Cabernet, decent price, would try again.

  35. Clinton Baird


  36. Marcelo Ripson

    Average wine, had to put in effort to enjoy. Will try a different option next time for the price.

  37. Debra Loguidice

    Stag’s Leap is relying on reputation, not wine quality.

  38. Mandy Sloane

    Aromas of violet, cassis, herbs, black fruits and dark chocolate. Dry tannins with medium plus acidity. Best after 2024.

  39. Susan Pack

    Well balanced fruit with floral and dark fruit notes on day one and tart cherry and earthy on day two. Holding on to ’07 and ’09 in hopes of aging gracefully.

  40. Jean Benchoff


  41. Leo Esparza

    A very primary wine with black fruit, a touch of wood, spices, and vanilla. The tannins are present and it has great potential if decanted for 1-2 hours.

  42. Maria Haro

    Really nice and in a great window if you like mature and mellowed wine.

  43. Nicholas Fuqua

    Bold body. Medium tannins with notes of oak, vanilla, and tobacco. Decant for one hour.

  44. Rochelle Solis

    Surprising classic Napa Cab with hints of eucalyptus, cigar, earth, unami, and spice box notes. No fruit to speak of, but nicely balanced with a smooth finish.

  45. Mary Miller

    Amazing aroma and taste. I want more. Cheers!

  46. Ramiro Tobin

    Stag’s Leap entry offering lacking complexity, blackberry and plum forward. Muted nose, medium finish. Went well with fried belly pork.

  47. George Mcdonald

    Luscious dark fruit, smooth mouthfeel, nice tannins. Drink now or hold for years.

  48. Evelyn Nolden

    Solidly made with dark fruits and a touch of prune. Short finish with mild tannins. Drinkable but not exceptional.

  49. Madeline Finch

    Too peppery for my taste.

  50. Carolyn Stewart

    Excellent young wine with deep color and notes of cassis, blackberry, and peppery spice. Firm tannins and good acidity. Not old school, but still excellent.

  51. Janet Rose

    Fruity with smooth tannins, hints of cedar and earth, and a slightly dry finish. Paired well with prime rib and chocolate fudge cake. Enjoyable.

  52. Allison Adams

    Prefer over The Leap. Reorder for sure.

  53. Paula Lyons

    Not recommended for mid-tier mid week wine.

  54. Aldo Schmidt

    Deep and rich, this Cabernet has a strong whiff of alcohol and a modern Napa flavor. Not rated as this style is difficult to appreciate.

  55. Nicole Horton

    Weak and watered-down with no finish, despite nice tannins.

  56. Charles Waller

    Closed nose and sharp tannins at first, but opens up after a few days with oxidation. Notes of spices and dark fruit. Palate is pleasant with blackberry and floral notes, not very complex.

  57. Joshua Bradstreet

    Perfect with venison. Notes of dark cherries, blackberries, and leather.

  58. Deborah Glasby

    Well-made but forgettable.

  59. Georgiana Relf

    Soft and easy to drink with a deep color and dark fruit notes, trending towards plum.

  60. Mario Hutzler

    Balanced, medium-bodied Napa cab with blackberry, raspberry, oak, vanilla, and tobacco notes.

  61. Jose Misnick

    Mature and softened tannins with notes of leather, black currants, and plum.

  62. Marilyn Pinon

    Flavors of cassis, tobacco leaf, and earth with dense cab color. Strong tannins. Day 2: Nose gains complexity, smoother on palate, and favorable tannins. Enjoyable but not a 90-point wine.

  63. Robert Porter

    J&L’s 4th Saturday Brown Bagger: Inky color, abundant black cabernet fruit. Excellent value.

  64. Eugene Smith

    Initial off-putting bitterness improved by decanting. Nose of dark berries, smoke, bitter herbs, cloves. Medium body with gentle acidity, stern red berries, charred baking spice. Distinct herbal stemmy note. Finish shows tannins that leave a drying effect. Overly smoky and charred for $70, terrible at $50. Not recommended.

  65. Antonio Miller

    Last bottle tasted better than previous two. Black fruits, chocolate, smooth and balanced. Pronounced sandalwood on palate, hint of tea on nose. Perfect w/ Chinese dishes and red meat. Exceeded expectations. Will buy again, hoping for consistency.

  66. Evelyn Ray

    Focused wine with black currant, plum, cedar and black licorice. Moderate finish.

  67. Carol Kinney

    Well-balanced Cabernet with fruit-forward dark berries. Opened up nicely after half an hour. Middle of the road, lacking distinctiveness.

  68. Harvey Ransom

    Medium bodied with subtle tannins, hints of Worcestershire, cloves, tobacco, and cola. Mild oak presence with a pleasant medium to long finish.

  69. Ruth Mcintosh

    Satisfactory, but overly ripe with strawberry notes.

  70. Lisa Rios

    Improved from previous bottle, enjoyable Napa cab.

  71. Breanna Snyder

    Balanced and aged California wine with a slightly brown rim, medium body, and subdued fruit flavors.

  72. Linda Koopman

    Simple and youthful, easy to enjoy.

  73. Barbara Cruz

    Dry and acidic, too young. Half bottle consumed.

  74. Ann Dingman


  75. Linda Schaffner

    Unfortunately, I cannot rewrite the review for you as there is no content provided. Please provide the existing review for me to work on.

  76. Thomas Johnson

    Favorite cab. Perfect with steak or pasta.

  77. Sidney Edmonds

    Jammy yet dry, excellent.

  78. Lita Riddle

    Pleasant Cabernet, best paired with food.

  79. Marilyn Ferguson

    Medium-bodied with a moderate nose. Could use more fruit, but not overly extracted like many new world Cabs. Resembles a Bordeaux.

  80. Elizabeth Sutter

    Wine was tight on Saturday, opened up after 20-30 mins. Red and black fruits with cassis on the nose. Tannins were strong on first sip but softened on Monday.

  81. Gregory Allen

    Napa cab took an hour to decant, but turned out nice and restrained, with old-school vibes.

  82. Joseph Davis

    Ruby-colored with a cassis, blackberry, and red currant flavor. It has a medium finish and is a great everyday Cabernet. It has a decent structure and would make a great addition to any wine collection.

  83. Jean Baker

    Past prime, drinkable.

  84. Janeen Gills

    Dense fruit, strong tannins, needs aging. Finish is heated. Will improve in 10-15 years.

  85. Jason Rivera

    Decent $50 wine with leather, smoke, and tobacco on the nose. Medium/dark fruit, currants, short rib, and shallow finish. Needs air and aging for depth and complexity. Unremarkable, but good for the price.

  86. Theresa Zirin

    Over-aged wine.

  87. George Silva

    Solid Cab without the sweet fruitiness of Californian Cabs. Not the best value option.

  88. Cary Musich

    Last of a case. Still at peak IMO. My best guess tracking this wine over the past 4 years is it hit peak in 2021 and will start fading in 2025. Tannins are getting very soft. Nice fruit forward nose still. Palate has lead and leather complexity to go along with red and dark fruits. Nice wine. All you’d want from value to mid range Napa. Not overdone.

  89. Douglas Byrd

    Napa wine with gentle plum and cherry cola on the nose, and a dusty tannin palate with a high-toned acidic finish. Good value at $40, but tough competition at $50. “The Leap” Cuvée is better QPR.

  90. Jorge Gainer

    Wine had a bit of cardboard smell. Fruit was still present with blackberry and violet floral tones. Better with food, but not worth rating.

  91. Eleanor Tanner

    Approachable 2017 vintage with dark fruit, vanilla, and oak notes. Warm blackberry, plum, and black cherry flavors with hints of baking spices. Great depth, well-balanced sugar, and smooth. Winner that can lay down for some time.

  92. Thomas Mccleery

    We paired this with Blueprint 2019.

  93. Georgia Rosenfield

    Deep garnet with notes of black fruit, prunes, fennel, spicy oak, and meat juice. Drinkable with food, but may be past prime or heat damaged.

  94. Jesus Hayden

    Great fruit and smooth taste.

  95. John Brunkhorst

    Refined, silky, and delicate with a lovely flavor. Pair with chicken or pasta, not red meat. Enjoy now, no need to cellar. Seeking more bottles up to $50.

  96. Samuel Mcfadden

    Young Napa Cab with tobacco, pencil shavings, dark fruit, cherries & cacao. Dust on palate. Tannins ease improving texture. Good for 8-10 years, try in 2025.

  97. Sheila Netzer

    375 ml bottle opened and poured. Initial taste rough and unbalanced. Green aroma dissipated after 30 minutes. Light texture with no notable structure or acidity.

  98. Beth Lamison

    Delightful with currant, plum, and cherry aroma. Smooth and great finish.

  99. Elizabeth Ramos

    Flavors of barrel spice, cedar, dark currants and blackberries with a hint of blood. Oak quickly fades to luscious ripe blackberries with good acidity and muscular tannins. A solid choice.

  100. Ken Nightingale

    Good wine, but aged too long. Nothing magical happened.

  101. WS

    Packed with açaí berry, boysenberry and plum compote notes, this lets the fruit spill forth while also keeping it well-formed, thanks to underlying acidity and a solid iron note. Vivid through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2034.

  102. JS

    Lovely aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, ground spice and anise. Full-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Juicy and vibrant on the palate with lovely balance and intensity. Drinking well now, but can definitely age. Drink or hold.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal that is widely regarded as one of the world's most popular and highly valued wine grapes. This grape is grown in many regions around the world, including France, the United States, Australia, Chile, and Argentina. The wine made from this grape is known for its intense flavor, high tannin content, and longevity. Cabernet Sauvignon is a hybrid grape, the result of a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, which are both native to the Bordeaux region of France. The grape is known for its thick skin, which helps it to withstand harsh weather conditions, and its small berries, which contribute to its concentrated flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are typically harvested in the late fall, when the grapes have reached their optimal... Read More
