Winemaker's Notes

Petite Syrah has long been a part of Stags' Leap Winery history. The 70-year old Petite Syrah vineyards located in front of the Manor House on the Estate's deep, rocky soils contribute to this blend, together with fruit from Stags' Leap's Petite Syrah partner growers up and down the 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.

Rich aromatics of ripe blueberry, blackberry, and cocoa together with a floral back note are the introduction to this expressive Petite Syrah. On the palate, ripe black fruit, espresso, spice and mocha commingle to create a luscious and balanced wine that features structured tannins and juicy, berry flavors to the end.

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.
