Stags Leap Vnyds P Syrah 04 Petite Syr Us-California 2004
winemaker's notes: Blend: 78% Petite Syrah, 15% Syrah, 4% Grenache, 1% Viognier, 1% Carignane, 1% Mourvedre Petite Syrah has long been a part of the history of Stags' Leap Winery. The 70-year-old vineyards located in front of the Manor House on the estate's deep, rock soils, contribute to this blend, together with fruit from established Petite Syrah growers throughout Napa Valley. Each year, Winemaker Kevin Morrisey creates a wine that reﬂects the property's ongoing commitment to this varietal by combining this diversity into a classic and complex blend. The rich aromatics of the 2004 Petite Syrah 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 very good petite syrah. Blackberry finish. Nice wine that paired well with lamb. Great price for Stag's Leap.
great red wine with cheese and steak. full bodied with a great berry taste.
Another one of my favorites. Full of that heavy, berry-rich flavor I really love in my reds. I
Really was surprised by this wine; bolder than I thought and a good price for a Stag's Leap wine.

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.
