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.

Dark crimson-purple. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Quite tannic. Blackberry, mint, anise. Solid, well gripped and dry through the finish. Rich blackberry and anise flavors show through, giving this a sense of proportion and balance.

A terrifically interesting and tasty wine, dense and full-bodied. It'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.

And the Oscar for the darkest wine of the year goes to... Stag'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.

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.

Long before the boom in ldquo;Pet,rdquo; Stagsrsquo; Leap was committed to it. And few wineries have performed more consistently over the years. The rsquo;03, from the wineryrsquo;s old estate vineyard exhibits dark, dry, rich, robust characteristics. Itrsquo;s a flamboyant, plummy-leathery wine that never loses control.
