Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Hands of Time 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Along a shady walkway on the tranquil grounds of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars one comes across a succession of limestone plaques, each bearing a handprint. These handprints comprise the Hands of Time exhibit, an enduring tribute to some of the many people who contributed to the winery's history over the years and have gone on to become celebrated winemakers and viticulturalists in their own right. With a tradition of mentoring that dates back to our founding in 1970, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars has been a springboard for many a storied winemaker's career. This wine, a Bordeaux-inspired blend, is a tribute to our alumni whose unwavering vision of crafting elegant and balanced wines has been passed down from teacher to student, and through the hands of time. The wine is crafted to express Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' signature winemaking style - an artful balance between ripeness and restraint, softness and structure. Wine Tasting Notes<br/>This Napa Valley red blend has pleasing aromas of spiced fruit, clove and vanilla. The palate offers a sweet fruit entry of cherry and raspberry, which wrap around the structured tannins and lead to a lingering spice-filled finish. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot

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.

Youthful nose, tart and acidic. Ripe red, blue and black fruit along with iron and graphite. On the palate, tart, young fruit, big alcohol, big minerality and big acid. Dark red, black and blue fruit. (14/20 pts) France vs. US Blind Tasting 6/15/12
