"Stags Leap wines could not be from just anywhere. They are California's epitome of wines of a place. ... If the land itself looks callous and unforgiving, the wines are the exact opposite: lush, opulent and cashmere soft."
—Karen MacNeil, Cabernet Heaven

"The 2009 reds are gorgeous, beautifully balanced reds with silky tannins, radiant fruit and huge early appeal."
— Antonio Galloni for Wine Advocate
Napa Valley's Stags Leap District experienced an even, steady growing season culminating in a 2009 harvest that went very smoothly. The season opened with a mild spring and our sub-appellation fortunately enjoyed very few frost occurrences. Temperatures were consistent throughout the summer months, allowing the grapes to ripen completely. In October, rainstorms threatened the neighborhood, but careful vineyard management and timely harvesting ensured an excellent crop, resulting in top-quality wines with magnificent balance and complexity.
This limited release, the only one of its kind from an American Viticutural Area, offers enthusiasts a unique one-stop-shopping opportunity to taste the power and grace, lush fruit and soft tannins notorious in the appellation's critically acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons. Designed to simply enjoy bottle-by-bottle or taste and compare in more complex tastings, this year's Appellation Collection includes the following Stags Leap District designated Cabernet Sauvignons:
