Considered one of the "first growths" of Napa Valley, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars produces renowned Cabernet Sauvignon from its historic Stags Leap District estate vineyards. Founded in 1970, the winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris."
Stag's Leap Aveta Sauvignon Blanc is dry, fresh, smooth and balanced with medium body and refreshing acidity. Their Aveta provides typical Sauvignon Blanc flavors but raised to the next level - lemon, lime, grapefruit, peach, pear, green apple, pineapple, stony minerality with a touch of summer grass. It's very delicious and refreshing on its own or with any seafood dish especially shrimp.
