And the Oscar for the darkest wine of the year goes tohellip; Stagrsquo;s Leap! Black as a moonless midnight, and one whiff sends you to heaven. Plums, blackberries, oak, all the right stuff. Sheer lusciousness, big, rich, and unctuous, fruity, rich and dry. Terrific now with game and roasts, but you can age it forever.

Long before the boom in "Pet," Stags' Leap was committed to it. And few wineries have performed more consistently over the years. The '03, from the winery's old estate vineyard exhibits dark, dry, rich, robust characteristics. It's a flamboyant, plummy-leathery wine that never loses control.

A terrifically interesting and tasty wine, dense and full-bodied. Itrsquo;s fillled with blackberry, cherry and peppery flavors that are generously oaked. The tannins are big and thick, but sweet, so you can enjoy this puppy tonight. But it will age and improve through the decade.

This classic Stag's Leap Winery Petite Sirah is dark, rich and peppery, with intense yet supple black pepper, black currant, and spice flavors that are well-focused. Finishes with a broad, complex aftertaste. Drinkable now, but sure to hold through 1998.

Winemaker 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 Rhone varietals. In a way, the heritage vines have been the winery's coach in learning how Petite Syrah likes to be made into wine. 'Petite Syrah craves the company of other Rhone 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 winery's long association with prime Petite Syrah growers in the Napa Valley has resulted in an optimum choice of fruit every season.
