Harvest & Tasting Notes:

Hillside fruit grown in the Stags Leap district has a reputation for producing wines which magically balance power and elegance. The coarse, gravely soils here tend to retain less water and thus stress the vines producing high intensity flavors. Nature and terroir teamed up in 2012 to create a wine that is deep and dark, opaque in the glass. Mineral and stone provide the backbone for lush cassis and black cherry on the palate. Medium acidity and fine tannins allow this wine to be elegant even in its youth. Drink now or cellar for seven to ten years.
