Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Merlot Stags Leap District 2006
Wine Tasting Notes This wines richness and depth of flavor is announced in a bouquet of cherries and blackberry pie interwoven with violets and allspice. In the mouth the layers of flavor unfold both vertically and horizontally, with overtones of toffee and spice playing off the main notes of cherries and cassis as fine tannins carry the flavor array through the velvety finish.
Very good Merlot. I enjoyed this wine and I tend to stay away from Merlots. This one had caramel and spice on the nose. I did get a bit of red fruit but couldn't make it out. Cherry flavors, some spice and soft tannins. Finish was a bit short. I think it will improve with age.

Over 55% of this blend is composed of estate fruit. We get much of this fruit from our ARCADIA VINEYARD which contributes structure as well as a core of red berry and plum characters with elements of spice. Then we layer in fruit from B.R.V. our estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District providing rounder brighter fruit notes and a tobacco leaf character. To augment the supple character of the Merlot we added a small but important percent of Cabernet Sauvignon to build weight and intensity. Fifteen months in French oak barrels brings all the elements together for an approachable yet refined wine.
