tasting notes

Aromas of blueberry, rose petal, and slate bloom from the glass. The palate, while complicated, boasts the classic roundness and balance of Stags Leap District. Layers of violet and liqueur intertwine, than give way to chocolate and cardamom. The flavors crescendo through tightly wound tannins to arrive at a satisfyingopen finish. Enjoy now, or further enhance the experience by aging. [ download pdf ]
