Steltzner Vineyards Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005
Stags Leap District is a unique place to farm grapes. Often called a valley within the Napa Valley, the Stags Leap District is influenced by cool evening breezes from the San Pablo bay and rocky volcanic soils. Combined with our eastern exposure this is an ideal place for growing grapes. Our family has been farming this land since 1965.
Dark fruit flavors of black cherry, plums and currants permeate the well balanced layers of tannins and smoky oak, all tinged with a hint of vanilla. The finish is long and supple with ample fine grained tannins and a nice acidity. While enjoyable now this wine will age gracefully for many years to come.
