Considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars produces renowned Cabernet Sauvignons from its historic Stag Leap District estate vineyards. Founded in 1970, the winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley when the 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the now famous 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the “Judgment of Paris.” Stag's Leap Wine Cellars’ three estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons—CASK 23, S.L.V. and FAY — are among the most highly regarded and sought after Cabernet Sauvignons worldwide. The wines are fashioned to express richness balanced by elegant restraint, an approach we refer to as “an iron fist in a velvet glove.” The winery is also recognized for its Napa Valley collection of wines including ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon and KARIA Chardonnay. These wines provide a strong link to the origin, style, and character of the limited-production estate wines, but they are produced in quantities that make them more accessible.
