Futo 5500 Stags Leap District Red 2014
This newer addition to the Futo line-up is the result of the Futo family purchasing their property at 5500 Silverado Trail a few years ago in the eastern hillsides of Stags Leap District. Resting between 150-300 feet into the hillside, the soil varies significantly from their Oakville vineyards with rocky soil that provides great drainage and small berries with optimal fruit intensity. The final blend is Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Merlot. “This is an incredibly sexy, broad, voluptuous and flattering style of wine, with an inky purple color and a big, sweet kiss of spring flowers intermixed with blueberry and black raspberry as well as some cassis. It has a full-bodied palate, but a wonderful lightness of being as it cascades with its fruit, glycerin and purity across the taster’s mouth This is a gorgeously proportioned, remarkable wine to drink over the next 25-30 years.” – Wine Advocate. This 2014 shows us why Stags Leap District has so much potential again as it is one of the wine highlights of the AVA.
