2014 Stags' Leap Petite Sirah, Napa Valley
With its rich core of blueberries, blackberry, lavender and pepper spice, the 2014 Napa Valley Petite Sirah displays the plush elegance and finesse for which our Petite Sirahs are known. The generous blackberry and black raspberry flavors remain powerful, yet are supported by lovely cinnamon, clove and cedar baking spice notes from the oak aging. There is beautiful freshness and mouthwatering acidity which runs throughout the wine, making it unbelievably soft with restrained tannins and a generous lengthy finish. This is an inviting wine that encourages you to enjoy it now but has the complexity to age for many years to come.
91 Points Robert Parker, WINE ADVOCATE - “The 2014 Petite Sirah, which is their basic introductory model, so to speak, is a sensational wine in its own right. Opaque purple-colored, loads of white flowers, blueberries and blackberries are present in this wine, which should drink well for 20-25 years.”
