Wine Profile
Vintage: 2002
Appellation: Stags Leap District
Aging: 18 months in French oak.
Fermentation: Each variety was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks with variable skin contact time.
Alcohol %: 14.00%
Tasting Notes: The wine is graceful and harmonious with stylish finesse, supple texture and gorgeous ripe flavors. The integration of fruit flavors supported by elegant oak tones is testimony to the artistic craftsmanship at work in the creation of the wine. The palate bursts with dark fruit in the front extending into a delicate but lengthy finish.
Vineyard Notes: Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. Elevage is crafted from grapes across our 28 distinctive vineyard blocks planted to [five] different red varieties for a proprietary blend that captures the essence of the silky tannins of our estate.
Production Notes: A relatively dry spring followed by a warm June, July and September resulted in a harvest that was neither early or late. Moderate heat spikes gifted the Stags Leap District with fruit that was concentrated and elegant in tannin profiles.
