Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from a field blend of Petite Syrah, Carignane, Grenache, Syrah, Peloursin and Mourvedre, NCM expresses the unique and enduring character of our historic estate. This debut release has classic orange peel and meaty aromas and ripe raspberry jam, sweet plum and spicy flavors. If you're a fan of Stags' Leap Petite Syrah, this is a wine you'll want to taste.

About Stags' Leap Winery:

A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags' Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s.

Stags Leap Manor, as it was called in the 1920s, was known as one of the prominent country retreats in the Napa Valley at a time when resort and spa business was big. In addition to lodging and dining, amenities included lawn tennis, swimming, horseback riding, children's activities, golf, music, cards, a library, and Napa Valley wines and liquors (prior to and after Prohibition).

An intimate valley within the greater Napa Valley, Stags Leap is a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines showing finesse and intensity.
