JOIN THE LEGACY OF A NAPA VALLEY LEGEND
About this Thematic Tasting
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars stunned the world 45 years ago when its S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon triumphed over France’s best Bordeaux wines in the 1976 “Judgment of Paris” blind tasting. This sommelier-led tasting with Winemaker Marcus Notaro explores the winery’s history and the legacy of its wines today.
Named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, this wine truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the region’s character and the signature Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars style. This approach results in a wine of lush fruit flavors balanced by extraordinary structure and elegance.
S.L.V. is the winery’s first vineyard. Planted in 1970, it achieved international fame when three-year-old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that won the “Judgment of Paris.” Today, this history-making vineyard continues offering wines with layers of complexity, spicy intensity and excellent structure—promising long life and ageability.
