Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) The Stags' Leap Napa Valley Merlot has significant structure that is complemented by soft, supple tannins. The 2008 blend highlights how complex Merlot can be, starting with aromas of clove and cocoa followed by intense flavor notes of black cherry, plum and coffee.
