Best Ever Stag’s Leap
Investor for both the Wine Advocate and CellarTracker. Equal to the immensely
popular 2013 Stags’ Leap The Leap Cabernet…and better than the 2010!
The Wine Advocate says:
The 2015 Proprietary
Red The Investor is blended of 42% Merlot, 30% Petite Sirah, 19% Cabernet
Sauvignon and 9% Malbec aged 18 months in about 30% new oak. Very deep
garnet-purple in color, it reveals freshly crushed black and red currants,
black cherries and unsmoked cigars with hints of violets, chocolate box and
cedar. Full-bodied and packed with vibrant black fruit layers, it has a firm,
very fine-grained frame and finishes long and spicy.
Winemaker Christophe Paubert
previously worked at Chateau Yquem and Gruaud-Larose, and there’s definitely a
very Bordeaux-like poise, sophistication and class to this wine. As well as of
course pure Napa Valley generosity of flavor.
