Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Merlot United States California Napa County Napa Valley Red 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2000 vintage is a juicy, full, soft and supple wine. It's liquid velvet. On the nose, this wine entices the palate with aromas of black cherry and black pepper. In the mouth, it bursts with blackberry, currant and sweet oak flavors that lead to lingering hints of licorice, leather, smoke and chocolate. Its captivating full mouth and complex tannins combine to create a luscious example of the varietal.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars:
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown.
