The 2015 Stags' Leap Viognier is elegant and complex, driven by delicate rose and citrus bloom aromas. Juicy apricot and nectarine dominate the palate with a subtle blend of passion fruit, melon and honeysuckle. With a bracing, crisp acidity and distinctive freshness, this Viognier has an enviable balance of floral characteristics, rich texture and inviting minerality
Winemaking is traditional here, focused on a pure expression of the land. We didn’t invent winemaking; we just work hard at it. Everything is well-informed by experience and classic winemaking technique, but nothing is rote or formulaic. Decisions are made based on the fruit itself, and the conditions of each and every harvest. Our consistent quality of wines comes from this balancing act. Our wines are well made. They’re delicious, showing finesse and integrity.
On one of California’s earliest wine estates, a unique terroir and ideal microclimate support a classical standard of viticulture, land use, and winemaking that is as relevant today as it was over a century ago. 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.
