Cliff Lede 'Scarlet Love' Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Napa Valley - K. Laz Wine Collection

You'll be hard pressed to find another Napa Valley Red of this quality and caliber at its price point. We tasted this last month and really enjoyed this new release from Cliff Lede. Their estate vineyard blocks are named after Cliff's favorite rock songs. The name of this blend is derived from "Scarlet Begonias" in their Twin Peaks vineyard and from "Sunshine of Your Love" in their Poetry vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon in "Sunshine of Your Love" is planted in shallow volcanic soil and farmed to low yields, contributing concentration and classic Stags Leap character to the backbone of the blend.  "Scarlet Begonias" is a small block of Petit Verdot that provides depth, structure, and a luxurious perfume of floral and spice notes. All of their vineyards are farmed by David Abreu. Scarlet Love shows off the depth and quality of the terroir in our little section of Stags Leap District.  Aromas of Luxardo cherry, blackberry, and black licorice soar from glass. Beautifully integrated and expressive, the bouquet is complex with layers of crushed rock minerality, dark chocolate, and sweet ripe fig.  The cashmere-like tannins caress the palate and linger for a long epic finish. This new release is comprised mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.
