Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars-Cask 23-Estate-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2000-$110.00-The Super Bowl calls for pulling out a prize from the cellar, decanted for 1+ hour, nose was a elegant currant and spice, beautiful dark amber in color.  Smooth, great flavors of currants, some earth, spice, great mouth feel, 30-45 second finish.  It’s always a bit scary when you open an older wine and hope and it’s aged well, this one did not disappoint in any way.  I was sad when I took the last sip, what a great bottle of wine.           WS-91         CR-5          Great with prime rib, onion soup, chicken.
