Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 78% Petite Syrah, 15% Syrah, 4% Grenache, 1% Viognier, 1% Carignane, 1% Mourvedre

Petite Syrah has long been a part of the history of Stags' Leap Winery. The 70-year-old vineyards located in front of the Manor House on the estate's deep, rock soils, contribute to this blend, together with fruit from established Petite Syrah growers throughout Napa Valley. Each year, Winemaker Kevin Morrisey creates a wine that reflects the property's ongoing commitment to this varietal by combining this diversity into a classic and complex blend.

The rich aromatics of the 2004 Petite Syrah include ripe black fruit, black currants, cocoa and hints of vanilla. On the palate, blackberry, black plums integrate with back notes of maple syrup, creme brulee, and hints of earth, to introduce a very full and voluptuous mouthfeel. With classic Petite Syrah tannin structure, this wine finishes with a long, chewy bitter-chocolate finish.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah(peh-TEET seer-AH) Not So Small There is nothing petite about this grape. Petite Sirah, the result of a crossing between Syrah and Peloursin, is also known as Durif.
