Stag'Leap Petite Syrah 2008
Petite Syrah is a wine that has become synonymous with Stags’ Leap. The 30-year old Petite Syrah vineyards located in front of the Manor House on the estate’s deep, rocky soils form the backbone of this blend, to which we incorporate fruit from our established grower-partners throughout the Napa Valley. Each year, these components are combined into a classic blend that reflects the property’s ongoing commitment to the varietal.
This wine is amazing for a wine snob on a medium budget. Let it decant and watch it open up to velvety richness. I won't waste it on someone who doesn't know wine, but would be happy serving it to guests who appreciate a very good glass.
External Reviews for Stag'Leap Petite Syrah
Intensity, complexity, structure, and elegance are the signature descriptors of this wine. Aromas open with clove, spice and concentrated black fruit. As the wine opens, distinct blackberry notes are revealed along with balanced acidity, rounded tannins and fresh fruit flavors. Vanilla, brown sugar and subtle pepper persist at the finish with lingering juicy red fruit as well.
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.
