Since Founding Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in 1972, Warren Winiarski has produced wines that are classical and refined in style. An intimate valley within the greater Napa Valley, Stags Leap is a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines showing finesse and intensity.
Wines from this small, family-owned winery were in sudden demand when its 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon came in first place at the legendary 1976 Paris Tasting, an event that helped win international recognition for California wines.
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis 2012
This wine’s richness of perfume and structure reveal the blend’s higher
percentage of grapes from the renowned FAY vineyard. The nose is filled with the
fragrance of violets, raspberries, rosemary, and truffle, with a core of black
plum. More black fruit blossoms on the palate, yielding flavors of black cherry
and a touch of cassis, shot through with a delicate overtone of vanilla. The
firm tannins carry through to a satisfyingly spicy finish. This beautifully
balanced wine will marry well with both traditional holiday favorites, such as
rare prime rib and roast turkey, and less obvious pairings, including seared Ahi
or swordfish with a savory shallot sauce or a rich white truffle risotto.

Stag's Leap Winery Chardonnay
This Chardonnay is a story of balance, a delicious intersection of richness and minerality that benefits from the classical standard of viticulture, care of the land, and winemaking that is as relevant today as it was in 1893 when the winery was established. This is a beautifully aromatic wine, with stone fruit flavors of fresh peaches and nectarines mingling with pineapple, a hint of mandarin orange and other citrus fruits. A classic example of cool climate Chardonnay, this is bright and crisp, but also features lightly toasted undertones that give it length and richness on the palate. With a round, floral finish, this is a refreshing wine that is deftly balanced, ready to enjoy now but with the acidic structure to be cellared for several years.
