A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags’ Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s. Stags Leap Manor, as it was called in the 1920s, was known as one of the prominent country retreats in the Napa Valley at a time when resort and spa business was big. In addition to lodging and dining, amenities included lawn tennis, swimming, horseback riding, children’s activities, golf, music, cards, a library, and Napa Valley wines and liquors (prior to and after Prohibition).

Surprised it was a Merlot, full body of a cab. Good structure, well balanced. Had some staying power in the fridge. Was a little dry.

aromas of deep, lush fruit – blackberry, cherry, strawberry and cassis – with hints of earth and caramel. Juicy flavors of black fruit show generously on the palate and the complimenting blend of intense flavors and silky tannins.

Clay and I tried this in San Francisco for dinner. I had it with the prime rib and it was very good.

A Merlot for Cabernet lovers, the 2010 Napa County Merlot is a surprise, giving everything the varietal should, plus much more. Juicy flavors of black fruit show generously on the palate and the complimenting blend of intense flavors and silky tannins show just how complex Merlot can be.
