Hills to the west and east of the Stags Leap District funnel breezes from the bay into the interior of the region, making this small but renowned AVA slightly cooler at night than other areas in Napa Valley. This subtle climate variation and the appellation’s soils—comprised of old river sediments and loamy clay that limit the vigor of the vines—result in wines with a beautiful and focused flavor profile.

Pts. James Suckling "Beautiful, mellow and ripe red and black fruit is wrapped in an especially smooth texture of fine-grained, silky tannins for an elegant, charming, approachable expression that the Stags Leap District is known for. Made for many years from the Schweizer Vineyard. Drink or hold." - Jim Gordon, JamesSuckling.com, February 8, 2024
