Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes Stags' Leap Winery The Investor Red Wine 2019
The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2018 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2019 wines are of very high quality with lower alcohol, concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity.
Indicative of the winery’s ability to combine power with grace, the 2019 Investor is plush and inviting, with expressive notes of blackberry, black currant, macerated blueberries, and wild black plum alongside baking spice notes of vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Intriguing notes of black pepper, tobacco leaf and floral violet are supported by more savory elements of fresh thyme, lavender and sage. The soft, round mouthfeel is rich and generous with present tannins that warm and coat the palate leading to an incredibly lengthy finish with ripe, mouthwatering acidity. Enjoyable now and can be cellared for 5-10 years. Pairs perfectly with a variety of foods as the ultimate crowd-pleaser.
