Established in 1893, Stags’ Leap Winery is one of the oldest wine estates within the acclaimed Stags
Leap District, producing wines expressive of its unique terroir. With an enduring winemaking
philosophy that honors traditional techniques while embracing modern capabilities, and by using the
finest grapes from our own 80-acre vineyard and from quality-focused growers, Stags’ Leap wines
embody a natural balance, exhibiting both intensity and finesse, while bringing forth the inherent
qualities of each variety.
The 2017 Petite Sirah is vibrant and expressive with a cornucopia of blackberry, blueberry and black
cherry fruits interwoven with floral musky notes of violet and jasmine, alongside more savory herbal
notes of white pepper, earthy loam and crushed rock mineral notes. On the palate, juicy flavors of
creamy cassis, macerated blackberry, cherry kirsch, black licorice and peppery plum envelope the
rich, saturated mouthfeel, followed by a subtle black gunpowder tea, allspice and black pepper note
from the oak ageing integrates seamlessly. This wine is intense and robust with velvety tannins and a
generous lengthy finish, with acidity supporting throughout, encouraging you to enjoy it now, but has
the depth and complexity to age for many years to come.
