International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

(75% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 5% petit verdot; aged 18 months in all new French oak): Cool aromas of black cherry, menthol and licorice. Slightly streaky acidity accentuates the penetrating quality to the cassis, licorice and kirsch flavors. Building tannins are joined by a firm acid spine on the end, which features some rocky, almost syrah-like notes. This fruit comes from "the beginning of Atlas Peak, the south part of Stag's Leap," noted winemaker Philippe Melka, who told me yields were low in both 2009 and 2008. Dense, fresh and cool for Napa Valley wine, with good acid lift.
