External Reviews for Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is unquestionably one of the icons of the Napa Valley. While it is currently fashionable to point the finger at California for a style of wine that is considered too packed with fruit, concentration, and alcohol, this could not be less true of this estate which from its beginnings has persisted with a style that is summed up by the word “classical”, where ripe fruit and perfume are paired with elegance and structure. In the Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc the 5% Semillon adds a little richness to the Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque (prized for its intense floral and tropical fruit flavours) but the style is fresh and lively, elegant and mineral with keen zestiness and fine acidity, flavours of grapefruit, mandarin and pear. This is a versatile wine that will complement a wide range of foods.
