Tasting Note: With over a decade working with this vineyard, Steve Reynolds has produced a wine of bold strength, hedonistic decadence and precise balance that sells out every year. Flavors of black currants, espresso and dark chocolate lead your palate to a silky-smooth finish. Think Napa Cab without the big tannic punch. Take note the 2017 vintage is the last for the Stags Leap Merlot.
