Stags' Leap Winery Viognier Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dominated by a bouquet of honeysuckle, nectarine, citrus blossom, and essence of pear, this wine combines bright floral expression with a voluminous richness on the palate. This classically luxuriant Stags Leap Napa Valley Viognier balances its full body and silky viscosity with fresh vibrant acidity. A terrific vintage for Viognier, the wine is intensely aromatic and exuberant in its delivery of true varietal character. The finish is delicate, dry and crisp.

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).

Apricot, green apple, and good acidity. Less buttery and weighty than most Viogniers.
