A Time To Indulge
A Little Holiday Extravagance
We’re right in the middle of that glorious time of year when indulgence is not only acceptable, but actively encouraged. I love that the holidays are truly a time of over-the-top commitment to all things merry, bright, and of course delicious. I want to enjoy my holiday cookie boxes, overly marshmallowed (is there even such a thing?) hot chocolates, and crackling cozy fires with true commitment to the pleasure these little things can bring to an otherwise cold and gloomy month. It’s a great time to say yes instead of no when given the opportunity for an extra bite of something delicious or another glass of top-notch bubbly. And speaking of wine, it’s also a fantastic time to splurge on something extra special for your own cellar or a very thoughtful gift for the wine lover in your life. My recommended holiday wine indulgence? This beautiful 2016-2018 Vertical of the Stag’s Leap SLV Cabernet Sauvignon.
2016-18 Stag's Leap SLV Cabernet Sauvignon Vert $575 (3 pk)

Stag’s Leap is one of those wines that truly requires little introduction. The SLV (Stag’s Leap Vineyard) was the winery’s first vineyard, planted in 1970. In 1976, at the famous Judgment of Paris, it was the 1973 Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon that took top prize against some of the most-lauded names in Bordeaux, launching California Cabernet to the front of the world stage. Today, Stag’s Leap continues to produce some of the most iconic and outstanding wines in Napa Valley, and this vertical showcases their commitment to excellence while also giving a glimpse into the evolution of the SLV Cabernet across three great vintages. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate ranked the 2016, 2017 and 2018 with a 97, 95, and 97, respectively. Whether you’re a fan of high-scoring wines, or just a lover of great, classic bottles, it’s hard to imagine a better addition to your holiday celebrations than this trio.
