Stags' Leap 2013 The Investor

90 Points 

“A blend of 38% Merlot, 32% Petite Sirah, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Malbec aged in a combination of French and American oak for 16 months, the 2013 Proprietary Red The Investor is an intriguing combination of grapes. Stags’ Leap winemaker Christophe Paubert (from Bordeaux) has produced an opaque purple wine with notes of blackcurrants, blueberry, white flowers, a full-bodied constitution, impressive purity and moderate tannins in the finish. It needs several years of bottle age and should drink well for 15 or more years.” — Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Stags' Leap 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and dense, showing a heady bouquet of dark plum, blackberry and hints of vanilla and cinnamon spice which continues through on the palate with beautiful dark berry and cassis, giving this Cabernet a classic elegance and feel. Seamlessly integrated oak and refined tannins provide a silky texture while the bright, fresh, dark blackberry fruit flavors and hints of black pepper, cocoa nib and coffee with a slight savory-ness on the finish, balance the wine’s impressive concentration.

Stags' Leap 2014 Napa Valley Petite Sirah

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.
