Established in 2002, Cliff Lede Vineyards encompasses sixty acres in the famed Stags Leap District. Owner Cliff Lede, viticulturalist David Abreu, Winemaker Michelle Edwards, and consultant Michel Rolland have come together to form an unrivalled team, making the most of this remarkable property. Completed in time for crush 2005, the new state-of-the-art gravity-flow winery boasts a berry-by-berry sorting system and conical tanks commissioned using a design inspired by the tanks of Château Latour. One tank per vineyard block ensures each lot evolves at its own pace and acres of caves with single-layer barrel storage ensure access to each barrel at all times. No corner has been cut. The winery produces Sauvignon Blanc, Claret and Cabernet Sauvignon. The flagship, Poetry Cabernet Sauvignon, is crafted from the steep hillside portion of the estate. The land, the talent, the tools and the passion: Cliff Lede Vineyards, a notable addition to the Stags Leap District. – Description from Kursulla

    In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot were blended in. Just more than 1,300 cases were produced. Red cherry and blackberry explode with conviction from the nose here. The palate is stuffed with blackberry and mineral notes. Dark chocolate, tobacco and oodles of spices are present on the long, opulent finish. This will drink ... Read More

  • Stag'Leap Petite Syrah 2008


    This wine is amazing for a wine snob on a medium budget. Let it decant and watch it open up to velvety richness. I won't waste it on someone who doesn't know wine, but would be happy serving it to guests who appreciate a very good glass. Read More

    We had no expectations when our server suggested this wine with our dinner. He stated that the owner knew Mr. Lede and that this wine had become his favorite at this price point.
