Richard Steltzner established his first Stags Leap District Vineyards in 1965 while concurrently engaging in vineyards management. Steltzner Vineyards' first commercial release was in 1977, and the Steltzner Family established their own modest facility in 1983, with a 3,000 case capacity here in the Stags Leap District. In 1989, Dick & Christine Steltzner began the expansion of their winery with a 710 foot underground storage tunnel, which has allowed increased volume as well as enhancing the quality and characteristics of wine storage. In 1992, the expansion was completed with a Mediterranean style structure providing a new laboratory, special event room, offices and reception area for winery visitors. Today at Steltzner Vineyards you will find Dick's children working with him to carry on his legacy here in the Napa Valley. Allison Steltzner began working with her father full-time in 2002 after completing her Bachelor of Sciences Degree at Chico State, majoring in business administration, with a minor in marketing. Allison is uniquely suited for her post as General Manager and National Sales Director for Steltzner Vineyards. Today, she is joined by Justin, as the second generation Steltzner family to work full time in the winery. Justin carries on his father's farming traditions and works side by side with Dick to manage the ranch and produce optimal fruit from our estate. Their sister Laura makes her home in Casablanca, Morocco with her fiancee working in the cosmetics business. Read less

Loamy earth, dried currant and cedary oak flavors provide a rich, complex range of flavors, yet this seems tired and ends simpler on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2012.

Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, this Bordeaux blend shows a lovely structure, and ripe black currant and fruit, tarted up with toasty oak. It's dry and balanced and complex. this is a great price for a Napa Cab of this quality.

Demonstrates why the classic Bordeaux blend is so successful! Ripe Merlot fruit benefits from the structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc lending herbal notes.
