Stag S Leap Winery Petite Sirah 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The rich aromatics of this wine include ripe black fruit, black currants, cocoa and hints of vanilla. On the palate, blackberry, black plums integrate with back notes of maple syrup, creme brulee, and hints of earth, to introduce a very full and voluptuous mouthfeel. With classic Petite Syrah tannin structure, this wine finishes with a long, chewy bitter-chocolate finish.

A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags’ Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s. Stags Leap Manor, as it was called in the 1920s, was known as one of the prominent country retreats in the Napa Valley at a time when resort and spa business was big. In addition to lodging and dining, amenities included lawn tennis, swimming, horseback riding, children’s activities, golf, music, cards, a library, and Napa Valley wines and liquors (prior to and after Prohibition).

The color is a deep ruby red. The nose is very full of barrel and slightly harsh. There are notes of plum, blackberry and currant. The initial taste is very much the same as the nose, although lots of tannins and has a large mouth coat and heavy throat feel. The follow-through is medium bodied and heavy. It is slightly spicy, but overwhelmingly full of the taste of the barrel. The pairings for this wine are meatloaf or something of similar sophistication.

Very young and green, high tannins. Needs to age in the bottle several more years.

I would have given this a lower rating but I think the potential is there if you are willing to wait five years. If you are planning to open now and drink let it decant for an hour. If you have five years then let is lay down Lots of berries and intense fruit. However not very balanced because of the tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:Out of a 1920s era field blend block has risen a legacy of richly aromatic Petite Syrahs, voluptuous in the mouth, central to Stags Leaps commitment to Rhne varietals. In a way, the heritage vines have been the winerys coach in learning how Petite Syrah likes to be made into wine. "Petite Syrah craves the company of other Rhne varietals", says winemaker Kevin Morrisey. "She blossoms in their presence. The flavors, structure, and elegance express themselves with greater intensity and purity from the soft touch of cross-blending." The winerys long association with prime Petite Syrah growers in the Napa Valley has resulted in an optimum choice of fruit every season.

Expressive notes of cocoa powder, raspberry and lavender introduce this luscious and intensely fruity Petite Syrah. The palate follows with ripe black plum, black coffee, bittersweet chocolate and brown spice wrapped around structured tannins with juicy, berry flavors on the finish.

Blackberry, black cherry, smoke, bitter chocolate and cedary oak on the slightly port-like nose. Densely packed, lush and sweet, with grapey cassis and dark chocolate flavors complemented by an element of cedary oak.Finishes with broad, tongue-dusting tannins.The chocolatey oak element builds on the back end.
