My last bottle of anything 1999 from this winery, and that sucks! Color: A deep red robe of garnet, a vibrant claret! Nose: The youthful color deceives the taster as the nose is definitely mature with leather, cigar wrapper, but there are ripe currants and black cherry, loamy earth. Palate: The attack is immediate, and expands over the mid palate and persists easily to the finish, a classic Napa claret, not a monster cab. Oak is just about nowhere to be found, as the currants and cherry take center stage on the palate, with classic Stag's Leap silky tannin, good acidity too. I wish more wines were made this way in Napa these days...subtle, yet powerful in expression.

Let this one breathe a bit. After a while, about 30 ", ripe cherry comes out with pencil lead. A slight off sour vanilla scent. On the palate, sour cherry and strong black licorice with good acidity but still firm tannins that mask the fruit. Good but not stellar.

Sadly only 998 cases of this wine were produced. Starting with the '99 vintage, output from the SLV vineyard has diminished because the vineyard is slowly being replanted. Tight cardboard aromas with raspberry and sage. Big plush mouth feel with fruit and oak in spades.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
