Striking an enticing balance between liveliness and density, this vintage offers plush, round aromas of dark fruit and herbs followed by a mouth-filling blend of blackberry, black cherry, balsamic-infused strawberry, blueberry, cassis, herbs, and mocha. The whole package bears the stamp of Stags Leap District with ripe, easy-to-love tannins and a long, complete finish.

Wine EnthusiastCrushed blackberries compete with a hearty bouquet of violet in this gigantically powerful and structured wine. Soft and leathery, it features spikes of black pepper, vanilla and pungent black earth amid a dense, concentrated finesse of tannin and oak, with a lengthy finish awaiting. This is power at its best, a reflection of an idyllic vintage in the hands of a skilled producer.

Wine SpectatorFirm and tight, with a trim, tannic band of chewy, cedary oak, dark berry, graphite, light mocha and espresso notes, ending with chewy tannins and a late burst of cherry-laced fruit. Drink now through 2028. 9,000 cases made.
