About This Wine
Special offer: any purchase of 6 bottles will also include the bespoke collector’s wooden box.

“Sed Contra Audentior Ito” – Always Push Harder – was the latter part of the family motto of Stags’ Leap Winery founder Horace Chase. Audentia is our tribute to this sentiment, crafted from an inimitable blend of estate vines that each year push to yield their most concentrated, yet nuanced and elegant fruit.

Framed by dramatic palisades on the east in an intimate valley within the greater Napa Valley, Stags’ Leap Winery is a place of natural beauty, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines. One to always push the envelope, Winemaker Christophe Paubert sought out to craft a blend that distinctly captures the essence of the Stags’ Leap Estate and all the beloved nuances that are a part of it.

Crafted in extremely limited quantities from each vintage’s highest achieving blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of our finest Petite Sirah, this wine is the ultimate expression of our estate’s distinctive terroir. The Cabernet lots for Audentia were hand selected from a singular expanse of our estate vineyards that features thin, rocky soils in its upper reaches, giving way to finer-grained loamy soils at its floor. The Petite Sirah was sourced exclusively from Block 9, which produces Petite Sirah with exceptional red and black fruit characteristics that we liken to Cabernet grapes.

Quantities are limited.

Ratings: 95 Points, Robert Parker “Another extraordinary wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Audentia. This is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Petite Sirah aged 20 months in a combination of new and neutral French oak. A very expensive wine, there are only 638 cases of it; this is meant for long-term cellaring for collectors. Notes of tobacco leaf, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, roasted coffee and spring flowers all jump from the glass of this powerful, rich wine that is singular in style and character.”Robert Parker, March 3, 2016
