Wine of the Week
This Cabernet based blend honors all those who have helped shape Stag's Leap Wine Cellars through the years.
From one of the oldest wineries in the Napa Valley comes a *very fine and very affordable cabernet* full of bright dark fruit and cassis aromas and flavors.
This is a true Bordeaux blend from Sonoma. It is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. This is one of the most luxurious, value driven wines I have had in a long time. Age worthy and worth drinking now.
To me, this is the best sparkling rose made in the United States. Granted, there is only about 700-800 cases produced, but if you are a sparkling connoisseur, you have to go in search of this bottle.
This is an absolutely stunning bottle of wine. Lush fruit, great tannins, it is 'Oakville in a glass.'
Lemon and lime ripeness on entry, evolving with honeydew melon, golden delicious apple mid-palate, and lingering with notes of kiwi. Light and well-balanced entry, full mid-palate, with a crisp lingering finish. 100% Stainless Steel.
This wine is viscous and textured, with wonderful minerality backed up by bright citrus notes of lemon and mandarin orange, as well as noticeable stone fruit characters of ripe white peach and apricot. Its fragrant, floral nose conjures bouquets of jasmine and honeysuckle. A beautifully balanced wine with strength breadth and length from start to finish.
This is such an easy drink, not overly fruity and perfectly balanced. It shows graceful, elegant fruit and fragrant, sweet oak spices. The gentle nature of the fruit from this vintage allows the influence of the barrels to shine through, lending rich caramel and vanilla notes to ripe tropical fruit, citrus and floral aromas. The palate is layered with golden apples and peaches and pierced by a bright streak of citrus that carries into the long and crisp finish.
Historical family and this Old Vine Zin is estate grown and absolutely outstanding.
This wine has a moderate body with deep, rich aromas. Beautiful, alluring flavors of dark black fruit and soft tannins. You aren’t left over with the black pepper, it is very approachable.
The counterpart to the white blend is in its 2nd Edition.
This Syrah-based blend is complex, velvety, juicy and nothing short of exquisite. It's a friend to grilled meats, barbecued chicken, Italian red sauce dishes, pizza, cioppino and even a fine ratatouille. In a nutshell, ERed is the worthy evolution of Evolution and most certainly worth the 13 year wait
To pay tribute to the 3rd most consumed white wine varietal, I’m recommending a Moscato. And yes, the packaging is a great concept.
Vibrant floral notes with aromas of peach and orange blossoms. Flavors of citrus, peaches, and tropical fruits dominate without losing their delicateness. A soft and luscious mouthfeel with a hint of effervescence for a beautiful liveliness and a balance to the sweetness.
The perfect balance of crispness and sweetness makes this Moscato a perfect pairing with spicy seafood or chicken dishes, and is amazing while paired with bleu cheese, and desserts that include pairs or peaches.
