Ilsley Vineyards 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
At Ilsley Vineyards, our philosophy is that a Reserve is not an every year thing. We choose a small portion of wine, usually one or two barrels from all the barrels made in great years only. The vineyard block(s) and specific barrel(s) chosen will have spoken to the wine maker as being special and distinctive. In 2012 we chose wine from two special, very small hillside blocks on The Ranch. We combined wine from blocks A and J to make this fabulous, fruit forward, Stag’s Leap signature wine. J block at the Ilsley ranch is just beneath the oak trees on the south facing slope. A is above the barn at the back of the property and faces southwest. J and A produce an average of one ton of grapes per acre. They complimented each other perfectly in 2012 to make this complete wine.

This exceptional wine is made possible because of the continued support of our customers, thank you.
