The Region
California’s North Coast consists of some of the most well-known and respected wine growing regions, including Napa Valley and Sonoma, the source of the grapes for this exceptional wine. The climate is quite variable from valley to valley, but is often classified as Mediterranean. Stags Leap District is located well to the south and on the eastern side of Napa Valley; the grower, Agrajanian, manages this rocky western sloped vineyard where Merlot is the celebrated grape variety.

The Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of this wine, providing great structure, body and depth of colour. Merlot provides a silky mouth-feel, and Shiraz intensifies the rich fruit character. This full-bodied wine has velvety tannins and a rich mouth-feel with flavours of red and black berries, cherry, mocha, vanilla, Chai spice, chocolate and oak. Made with a 2.6 L Super Pack which includes over14 lbs. of crushed grapes. The wine should drink well within 3 to 4 months of bottling and cellar for up to 2 years.
