Winemaker Notes

Located at the very heart of Stags Leap District, the Stags' Leap Winery continues a proud wine making heritage in the prestigious appellation that bears the winery name. Here, at their 240-acre wine estate, a unique terroir and an ideal microclimate support a classic standard of viticulture, land use and wine making that is as relevant today as it was a century ago.


94 points James Suckling

Love the aromas of clay, terracotta, blackberries and black licorice. Full-bodied yet compact and linear. Very fine tannins. Fantastic, cool and tight finish.


90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Petite Sirah is made up of 79% Petite Sirah, 8% mixed Rhône varieties, 7% Grenache and 6% Syrah, aged for 12 months in 25% new American oak. Very deep purple-black in color, it opens with notes of freshly crushed black cherries and black berries with touches of plum preserves, baking spices and tar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, very firm and grainy with a lively line to lift the peppery black fruit to a long finish.


90 points Wine & Spirits

Winemaker Christophe Paubert presents his Napa Valley petite sirah with a French accent, sweet, sassy and friendly rather than aggressively tannic. He builds it around petite sirah he grows at the Stags’ Leap estate, adding fruit from the warmer northern end of the valley and some cooler lots south to Coombsville. It’s rich with sweet cherry and black-tea tannins, ending lean and dry.
