Stags' Leap Winery Red Blend Napa Valley Ne Cede Malis 2005
A tribute to the Gypsies who labored, danced, and slept on the property during the Grange era Visitors to Stags' Leap in the mid-twentieth century were sometimes greeted by the sight of gypsies dancing around campfires in the vineyards. In addition to picking the grapes, gypsies camped on the estate with the blessing of its owner, Frances Grange. Gypsy Camp expresses our devotion to Rhône varieties at Stags' Leap, a tradition that dates back to the first plantings in 1888.

This wine opens with aromas of cassis and plum with notes of earth leather and cocoa powder in the background. Dark dense layers of black cherry blackberry and cranberry greet the palate and are supported by supple tannins and a full mid-palate. A lengthy finish of plum compte roasted coffee and baking spices comlete this classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker's notes:Planted by the Warren Winiarski family in 1970, S.L.V. achieved international fame when three year old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that shocked the wine world by triumphing over some of France's greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the "Judgment of Paris". Today, this history-making vineyard continues to yield wines of multi-layered complexity, structure, and spicy intensity.In its youth, this wine rewards those who let it sit in the glass and open up before discovering its generous character. At first, it presents dark fruit and floral aromas, then an earthy hint of rosemary and black truffle. Similar flavors unfold, including dark cherry, blueberry and plum that join with cocoa powder and spiced vanilla. This mouthfilling wine builds in richness and density through its long, smooth finish. Try it with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game, or a wild mushroom tart.
