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

    Wine review by carianne

  • We began this day wanting to explore more of the Silverado Trail.  Stops in Cliff Lede, Robert Sinskey and Stags Leap Wine Cellars were nice to see, but we did not taste here.  I have had most of the Lede and SLWC wines on the list, so I didn't see a point in tasting there.  All of them want $25 or more for a tasting and they don't even pour tha...

  • Cliff Lede Napa Sauvignon Blanc 2008


    A balanced sauvignon blanc made in a European style, not unlike a Sancerre. Straw color with sharp nose of grass and citrus (lemon-lime) and a hint of white floral. On the attack lively to strong acid, light in the mouth and smooth with a glycerin sheen and featuring tastes of honey, pineapple, mineral (or chaulk?), and orange. Short finish w... Read More

  • Cabernet Sauvignon My top scoring wine among these is the Malk, though the Trinitas offered alot of wine for a very price. Ultimately my personal choice among these wines is the Sausal. It's a classic old school style of California Cabernet bursting with ripe fruit and subtle notes of American oak. I love California Cabernet because it can be s... Read More

  • Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2006


    Lots of chili and grassy notes on the nose over note of vanilla, toast, cocoa, and crème de cassis notes. This is a bit cold in the mouth, tight and angry at being opened but with an emerging edge of fresh fruitiness. The tannins are refined, if copious with a really rich core of red and black berry fruit. Compressed on the finish as well but ... Read More

  • Cliff Lede Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2006


    Creamy fruit with buttered toast on the rewarding nose, good austere palate with very firm tannins and a full complement of herbs and chocolate. Finishes clean and fruity. Read More
