Wine Advocate, Lisa Perotti-Brown
"The very deep purple-black colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap comes sashaying out of the glass with evocative earth scents—forest floor, fungi, mossy bark and dusty soil—over a core of warm red and black cherries, crème de cassis and blueberry compote plus touches of cigar box and eucalyptus. The powerfully fruited, rich, full-bodied palate is wonderfully contrasted by layers of fragrant earth notions and framed with ripe, firm, grainy tannins, finishing with fantastic persistence and depth."

The ‘Stag’s Leap District’ wine is typically harvested earlier than wines from the other AVAs for HALL. The nose is a beautiful combination of red and dark fruits with dried herbs and dusty terroir. Hugely bright, yet dense, the combination of tannin and acidity really invigorates. Creme de cassis, mocha, red cherry cordial and sweet pipe tobacco flavors all marvelously combine in the glass..."

Deep garnet in color, the 2015 Stags Leap is alive with deep aromas of ripe cherry and juicy plum interwoven with a subtle perfume of violets, hot chocolate, and sweet cinnamon. The vibrant, luscious acidity on the palate that defines the wine is balanced by silky, opulent, concentrated tannins layered with a note of gravelly minerality. The culmination of these multidimensional attributes showcases the terroir of this unique area.

THE STAGS LEAP DISTRICT IS A PARTICULARLY unique appellation in the Napa Valley. It is bound on the east by the Stags Leap Palisades, on the west by rolling hills and the Napa River, on the north by the Yountville Cross Road, and on the south by flatlands. Distinctive soils and the dramatic marine influences of San Pablo Bay produce fruit that is well ripened yet still possessing a balancing vibrant acidity.

Vintage NotesAn unseasonably warm spring brought early bloom and bud break. Temperatures cooled in May causing grape shatter, which resulted in uneven fruit set and further reduced an already low crop yield. As a consequence, vineyard crews worked even more diligently during verasion thinning the clusters to maintain even ripening. The growing conditions, attention to detail in the vineyards, plus a final pass through optical sorting equipment at the winery make the quality of the vintage extremely high.
