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).

The 2009 Sauvignon Blanc (blended with 20% of the Musque clone and 6% Semillon) is not put through malolactic, and is aged in stainless steel as well as neutral oak. It reveals lots of honeyed citrus, melon and fig-like fruit. Delicate yet intense with loads of fruit, medium body and a long finish, it should be drunk over the next year. This vibrant wine offers a pleasing tropical nose of orange blossom, grapefruit, lychee and peach. On the palate the wine has a juicy, fruitdriven entry with lively acidity and flavors of guava, honeyed tangerine, juicy Comice pear, Kaffir lime and a mineral edge. The citrus notes mingle with sandalwood spice and linger on the energetic finish. Pair this wine with mild Thai curries or shellfish pasta with shallot and white-wine broth. - WineryAppellation: Napa ValleyFermentation: 65% French oak barrel, 35% Stainless steel tank/barrelMalolactic Fermentation: NoneBarrel Aging: 6 months sur lies, 100% previously filled French oak barrelsAlcohol: 13.5...
