Vintage 2013
Wine Type Red
Varietal Petite Sirah
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Christophe Paubert

A one-of-a-kind field blend from the Stags’ Leap Winery estate, the 2013 Ne Cede Malis reveals an opaque purple color that is the first telltale to this compelling wine. Amazingly deep, abundant flavors of blue and black fruit come together with notes of black ground peppercorn, black licorice and violet. Rich, big and expressive, the wine shows all the hallmarks of a great Petite Sirah, but is well-balanced with silky tannins and round texture that suggest incredible aging potential over many years.

96 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Lastly, and probably the rarest wine is the ancient-vine 2013 Petite Sirah Estate Ne Cede Malis, 85% Petite Sirah and 15% mixed blacks from one block planted in 1929. With oodles of blackberry fruit, damp earth, white flowers and almost painfully extracted, but with only 30% new oak, this is a massively concentrated monster of a wine to put away for 10-15 years and drink over the following 50+ years." - Robert Parker
