The Stags Leap Winery celebrated its first vintage in 1893. Here, at our 240-acre wine estate, a unique terroir and an ideal microclimate support a classical standard of viticulture, land use and winemaking that is as relevant today as it was a century ago. Alc. 14.5% by vol. 29 Vinted by Stags Leap Winery, Napa, California. Bottled by Stags Leap Winery, Sonoma, California.
Dense and full-bodied. Plum, dark cherry, and licorice notes are carried on balanced acidity. A long, soft finish endures.
