About the wine
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is an undisputed icon in Napa and one of the world’s kings of Cabernet Sauvignon, but they didn’t get there alone. Molded by a series of winemakers who’ve gone on to greatness, Hands of Time is a commemorative blend that honors the legacy of Stag’s Leap in the best way--with a chuggable, party-friendly red that still manages to ooze with elegance and class. Staying true to the Estate’s “iron fist in a velvet glove,” mentality, the ‘16 erupts with ripe, jammy black fruit balanced by baking spice and firm tannins.
Founded in 1970, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was one of the original estates that skyrocketed the Napa Valley to fame when its Cabernet Sauvignon beat out premier French wines during the 1976 Judgement of Paris tasting. And ever since, their bottles have reigned supreme, masterfully combining Stag’s Leap terroir with smooth, opulent styling and the structure to age well for decades, and maybe even centuries.
The first chance at their exclusive new release, AND at a bargain-basement price, this is a red worth hoarding! Don’t wait!

"Nearly opaque purple that's boasting nuances of optimal ripe fruit, blackberry, cherry, cardamom spices, licorice, scorched earth and purple flowers. The high tone red fruit hits the palate and ends up lingering with earth and black fruits. Moderate tannins and sensible sophistication. This still needs a bit of time to settle in bottle and blossom to its full potential. Decant now and drink over the next 3-5 years. Pair with grilled New York steaks, your favorite burger or lamb loin chops with rosemary jus."
