Winemaker Notes

Our Estate is divided into over two dozen individual vineyard blocks. Soil types, clones, rootstocks and microclimates vary from block to block showcasing the diversity of Stags Leap District fruit we have to work with every year. In some harvests we select a specific vineyard's grapes for individual bottling. We are proud to introduce Tomahawk Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a specific block of 9 acres. Long before California's statehood, the Wappo Indian tribe... View More

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Impressive for its stylish delivery of ripe, fleshy black cherry, plum and wild berry fruit. Full-bodied, yet elegant and polished in texture, finishing with black licorice, cedar-laced oak and nutmeg infused tannins, yet the flavors flow through nicely. Best from 2012 through 2023.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

This has the supple, layered richness of finely ripened Stags Leap District cabernet. The fruit is as dark as blackberries in a pie, but the wine doesn't feel hyperripe. That fruit shows enough intensity and perseverance to handle the significant oak treatment, which reads as black walnut for now, needing time to meld into the wine.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The delicious, dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard offers up aromas of black currants, cedar and flowers. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, it is a quintessential Stags Leap Cabernet to drink over the next 10-15 years.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Lush and smooth this is a Cabernet to drink now for its fantastic depth and captivating deliciousness. It's dry and tannic, with major flavors of blackberries, blueberries, currants and cassis, framed in smoky oak. Feels important and classy all the way, although it could use just a bit more acid bite for complete balance.

V 91
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Dark red-ruby. Crushed blackberry, cedar and spice aromas are lifted by a violet note; more primary than the basic Stags Leap District bottling. Dense, thick black fruit flavors are enlivened by firm, integrated acidity. Not reduced like the basic bottling but more firmly tannic and primary and structured for a slower, longer evolution in bottle. This youthful wine finishes with notes of bitter chocolate and violet, avoiding dryness. Clearly from a quality site.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
