Solid 'entry' Cabernet from Stags Leap. Like the merlot there was caramel and spice on the nose ... some leather as well. Lots of black cherry in the taste with good structure. I like this wine.

Chocolate, black cherry and dark plummy notes on the nose. Woodsy and dry cedar flavors at first, but the wine opened up after 30 minutes yielding much more fruit. Licorice and spice, giving way to blueberry and anise. Spicy acidic finish with firm tannins. Lots of aging to be had.

I had this with bbq ribs (at Redstone) and the pairing was one that you marvel at long after the meal. The smokiness of the ribs and the merlot made a wonderful marriage.

Winemaker's Notes:Merlot vines grow exceptionally in the Bale Loams of Stags’ Leap: alluvial soils with volcanic ash minerality. Underneath the top layer exists a deeper layer of sandy loam laced wit

Intense, complicated and challenging. It's an intellectual wine that will appeal to hedonists with its berry, chocolatey, meaty flavors and instant drinkability. Yet aficionados will find plenty to think about. Will it age? Will the fruit outlast the tannins? Is it merely likeable, or serious? The answers are yes, yes, and serious.

This wine is wonderfully aromatic with intense fruit notes of cherry, pomegranate, plum and strawberry, laced with spicy accents of vanilla, white pepper, and cinnamon. The aromas carry over to the palate, with an additional touch of milk chocolate. Subtle tannins gently grip the palate of this gracefully structured wine. A versatile wine with holiday fare, from herb-stuffed turkey to crown roast of pork with cornbread stuffing. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:Merlot vines grow exceptionally in the Bale Loams of Stags Leap: alluvial soils with volcanic ash minerality. Underneath the top layer exists a deeper layer of sandy loam laced with gravel and cobbles, allowing the kind of quick and thorough drainage that leaves the vines a little thirsty, concentrating their flavors. Searching for vineyards whose grapes complement the Estate has led us to partnerships with some of Napa Valleys premiere grape growers. Careful vineyard selection, followed by meticulous farming yields a Merlot with rich fruit flavors, full body, and firm structure.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A vibrant nose of plum, cassis, nutmeg, black licorice and hints of rosemary greets the taster, with additional layers of raspberry, tealeaf, rose petals and vanilla. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, plum, cassis, baked cherry pie, cocoa, toast, and allspice intermingle with dusty tannins, hints of white pepper and tobacco. Perfectly balanced and firmly structured, this wine has significant aging potential and is ready to enjoy now with an herb-stuffed turkey accompanied by a velvety chestnut soup.
