Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The Stags’ Leap Napa Valley Merlot 2009 is what Winemaker Christophe Paubert describes as a “serious Merlot.” With freshness and acidity underscoring its cool climate origins, the wine combines delicious black cherry, cassis and licorice flavors with subtle notes of leather, pepper and cinnamon.
