2008 Stag's Leap Merlot Napa Valley
This wine’s richness and depth of flavor is announced in a bouquet of cherries and blackberry pie interwoven with violets and allspice. In the mouth the layers of flavor unfold both vertically and horizontally, with overtones of toffee and spice playing off the main notes of cherries and cassis as fine tannins carry the flavor array through the velvety finish.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is a private Napa Valley estate that has been owned by my family since they established the winery in 1972 in what is now known as the Stags Leap District. They are best known for their three estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons, CASK 23, S.L.V. and FAY, which are among the most highly regarded Cabernets in the world. They use the "Golden Rectangle" approach to winemaking, balancing opposing elements to create wines that are both dynamic and harmonious, and embody the classical ideals that define the world's greatest wines.
