This is embarrassing. You screwed this up bigtime! The award claims to be for Stag's Leap Wine Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon but when you click on the link you show a bottle of Stags' Leap Winery.
Those are two different and unrelated wineries. Note the position if the apostrophe. The names of the two similarly named wineries were settled in a California State Supreme Court ruling.
FYI, Stag's Leap Wine Cellar is the winery which won the famous 1976 Judgement of Paris Contest with its 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon.
So which Cabernet Sauvignon won, Stag's Leap Wine Cellar or Stags' Leap?
Deep opaque purple. This full bodied cab reveals hints of black currant currant, vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel and spice. Tight grippy tannins and green long finish make this a wine that needs to be revisited in a couple years.

The 2010 St. Michelle Wine Estates Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from Napa Valley, has pleasant aromas of sour cherry and eucalyptus. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; BALANCED with refreshing acidity, drying tannins and a medium finish. This is a food friendly wine; drink now to 2018. My impression: NICE, 89 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted in Apr/14 at 'California Wine Fair' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.

Wine Align is out of date -- the 2011 is now released. I find the 2011 to be problematically under ripe, with a vegetal, green pepper note.
