Beschreibung

Die Geschichte des Spitzenweins von Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars mit dem Namen CASK 23 begann 1974. Dem legendären Winemaker Andre Tchelstcheff ist ein besonders gutes, größeres Faß aufgefallen. Der Wein war so wunderschön und köstlich, dass entschieden wurde, das Faß separat abzufällen. Sie ahnen es schon, es war das Faß Nummer 23, also Cask 23. Noch heute wird der Wein aus den besten Chargen des S.L.V Vineyard und des Fay Vineyard vinifiziert, jedoch nur in den besten Jahrgängen. Cask 23 ist bis heute ein historischer, gesuchter Napa Valley Klassiker, der in keinem Sammler-Keller fehlen sollte.

 

- 94-96 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: „Inky purple-black in color, the 2015 Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon (a barrel sample) has a crème de cassis, blueberry compote and licorice-scented nose with hints of bay leaves, spice box and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, it offers lovely restraint with elegant black fruits and earthy layers plus fine-grained tannins and a wonderfully long, minerally finish.“

- 93 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Virginie Boone: „This 100% varietal, estate-grown wine is earthy and brimming in vanilla, anise and cedar. Classic in style and approach, it offers a complex concentration of balanced fruit and savory components that accent substantial tannins.“

- 95 Punkte WINESPECTATOR, James Molesworth: „This features a very seductive feel, with long streaks of blueberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit showing range and freshness. Graphite and gently singed alder notes support the finish, with a backdrop of anise and vanilla hanging quietly in reserve. Displays polish, detail and length. Best from 2021 through 2040. 3,000 cases made.“

- 93 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: „The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 brings together the darker flavor profile and depth of the S.L.V. with the grace of the Fay, a pretty terrific combination in my book. Like all of these wines, the Cask 23 is decidedly understated in this vintage, and yet all the elements come together effortlessly. The Cask 23 is the most complete of these 2015 Cabernets from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars.“

- 18 Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON: „100% Cabernet Sauvignon. A famous blend from the two estate vineyards,  SLV and Fay. Aged for 21.5 months in new French oak. To be released in May 2018. Lustrous crimson. Very convincing nose with complex, plush fruit (from senior vines?) plus freshness. Pure pleasure. You'd be thrilled to encounter this nose in Bordeaux. Positively hums on the (attractively dry, neat) finish. Beautiful balance. Only a curmudgeon would fail to admire this wine. This will obviously age for many a long year but is so harmonious it could actually be enjoyed already. Some of the balsam notes in the much more basic Artemis bottling.“

- 94 Punkte INTERNATIONAL WINEREPORT: „Cask 23 is a combination of specific blocks and fruit selections from the FAY and SLV vineyards. In 2015 winemaker Marcus Notaro decided to craft the wine with fruit predominantly from SLV, about 60%, and the remaining 40% from FAY. The result is a simply fantastic wine which begins with inviting aromatics of blackcurrants, dark cherries, coco powder, lavender and spices all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and concentrated, with a voluptuous mouthfeel that is backed by soft, polished tannins, which expand seamlessly on to the long, supple finish. Overall, this is a fantastic wine which is simply delicious and totally inviting now, yet should also age gracefully for years to come.“

Notizen des Weinguts: The story of CASK 23 began during the harvest of 1974. Back then, the winery enlisted the help of celebrated winemaker André Tchelistcheff. As he tasted through various lots of new wines from that year, one lot from S.L.V. was so beautiful and deliciously distinct the winery decided it should be bottled separately. It was named CASK 23 for the large wooden cask in which it was aged. Today, the wine is a blend of the most distinctive fruit from the S.L.V and FAY vineyards, resulting in a wine of extraordinary depth and richness balanced by restraint. Over the years, CASK 23 has become one of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. Vineyards & Winemaking CASK 23 is a tale of two vineyards that come together in a harmonious blend. For the 2013 offering, 45% of the fruit is from S.L.V. (blocks 2B, 3B, 2A, 4) and 55% from FAY (blocks 8C, 3B, 2A, 5A, 7A). Specific blocks within these adjoining ranches provide distinct attributes to the wine. Vines planted in volcanic soils on the eastern hillsides of S.L.V. and FAY give CASK 23 its structure, concentration, spicy intensity and elegant tannins; those grown in the alluvial soils in the middle and lower sections of the two vineyards add vibrant fruit flavors, a supple mid-palate and perfumed aromatics. Each lot was vinified and aged separately in small French oak barrels for 21 months, allowing the characteristics of each block to develop, while adding subtle spice notes. In the latter stages of aging the lots were blended, becoming one in CASK 23. Vintage The 2013 harvest was Winemaker Marcus Notaro’s first at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. He describes the vintage as a winemaker’s dream. “I couldn’t have picked a better vintage to start with,” he said. “This was one of the most even vintages I’ve ever experienced, giving ultimate quality and uniform ripeness.” A dry winter and spring were followed by warm weather in May/June that turned to moderate, if not cool, temperatures in July/August. The grapes colored up quickly and evenly; a nice sign that the grapes would finish off ripening in a uniform manner. A four-day heat spike in early September hastened ripening of some grapes, but there was an immediate return to moderate conditions and near perfect weather for the rest of September and early October. The varietals ripened one after another and the blocks ripened evenly. This allowed the fruit to be picked at the right time for each block and gave ample time in the winery to bring out the best characters for each lot. Tannins are ripe and soft and the wines are full of fruit. Wine The 2013 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of blackberry, cinnamon and violet along with hints of clove and nutmeg that carry over onto the palate. The wine has a soft, plush texture with fine-grained annins that meld with the signature bright red cherry notes of the vineyard, leading to a lingering finish. Try pairing this estate-grown Cabernet with prosciuttowrapped pork tenderloin, braised short-ribs or roast chicken with fried sage.
