This one has a lovely, deep purple color in the glass. The nose is absolutely lovely, with aromas of leather, oak, mint and something green that I can't quite put my finger on. The taste is just an explosion of wonderful flavors dancing around your mouth. I often talk about how flavors progress from your first taste, to midpalate to the finish, but this wine just shows a pronounced yet smooth transition through all those phases. At first I taste lovely fruit, cassis, ripe cherry and plum, which transitions to oak and leather, moving toward a fantastically earthy finish, which I honestly didn't expect.

This Merlot opens with an inviting nose reminiscent of strawberry cheesecake with a graham cracker crust along with notes of black cherry, cola and crushed sage. The wine is expansive on the palate with flavors of ripe raspberry and baking spices and a long red fruit driven finish. Try pairing this wine with a herb-crusted (thyme/sage) pork loin or a goat cheese quiche or soufflé. - WineryBlend:90% Merlot10% Cabernet SauvignonBarrel Aging: 17 months, 26% new French oakAlcohol: 13.5%pH: 3.67Total Acidity: 0.54 g/100 mL


Winemaker's Notes:

The Stags’ Leap Napa Valley Merlot 2009 is what Winemaker Christophe Paubert describes as a “serious Merlot.” With freshness and acidity underscoring its cool climate origins, the wine combines delicious black cherry, cassis and licorice flavors with subtle notes of leather, pepper and cinnamon.
