Winemaker Notes

Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District is renowned throughout the world for its opulent red wines. The textural qualities found in this southeastern area of the Napa Valley—a pronounced silkiness and supple tannin structure—are the hallmark of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from this region. A combination of well-drained, rocky soils warmed by afternoon sun and the cooling influence of the San Pablo Bay produce expressive fruit with the Stags Leap signature velvet-smooth texture.

Wine Spectator

Tightly wound, with a good dose of oak, the smoky, meaty flavors compete with the currant and plummy ones, but it sorts out on the finish, where the flavors fold together nicely.

S. Anderson began with their first vineyard in 1971. The winery was completed in the fall of 1989, and the estate is now complete with vineyards, winery, gardens and wine caves. It is also home to the Anderson family. The 120 acres of vineyards, planted exclusively to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, lie in two of the world's most prestigious grape growing areas: The Stags Leap and Carneros Districts of the Napa Valley.

Legend has it that quick and nimble stags would escape the indigenous hunters of southern Napa Valley through the landmark palisades that sit just northeast of the current city of Napa. As a result, the area was given the name, Stags Leap. While its grape-growing history dates back to the mid-1800s, winemaking didn’t really take off until the mid-1970s after a small but pivotal blind tasting called the Judgement of Paris.

When a 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon won first place against its high-profile Bordeaux contenders, like Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion, international attention to the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley escalated rapidly.

The vineyards in this one-of-a-kind wine growing region receive hot afternoon air reflecting off of its eastern palisade formation. In combination with the cool evening breezes from the San Pablo Bay just south, this becomes an optimal environment for grape growing. While many varieties could thrive here, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate with virtually no others, save for a spot or two of Syrah.

Stags Leap soils—eroded volcanic and old river sediments—encourage well established root systems and result in complex, terroir-driven wines. Stags Leap District reds have a distinct sour cherry and black berry character with baking spice and dried earth aromas, and supple tannins.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
