STAG’S LEAP WINE CELLARS AVETA
Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc, 2016
This vibrant wine offers inviting aromas of citrus, guava, lemongrass, orange blossom and hints of boxwood and tangerine. On the palate, the wine is fresh with citrus flavors and has a lingering finish with a touch of bright acidity. The weight, flavorful texture, and acidity make this a versatile food wine.
Carneros, Chardonnay, 2016
Carneros’ unseasonably wet weather, uncharacteristically late harvest, and small yields produce this richly flavored wine. The buttery oak is complete with hints of tropical fruits and a toasty peach finish, and pairs with our Butcher’s Board selection of artisan cheeses and charcuterie or our Salt and Pepper Shrimp.
Napa Valley, Chardonnay, 2015
The grapes for this exceptionally fine wine were largely grown in the Carneros district. Full-bodied and vibrant with bright apple, citrus and melon flavors, this wine delights the palate. It is long on the finish and tastes of honey, vanilla, and spicy oak.
Las Alturas, Pinot Noir, 2015
From the high elevation of Santa Lucia Highlands, this single vineyard pinot rewards us with a deep color, flavors of plums and berries, and a touch of vanilla – infused by 9 months in French Oak barrels. This rich wine beautifully pairs with any of our live fire mesquite grilled entrées, such as our Marinated Skirt Steak or Chimichurri Chicken.
Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir, 2015
This vintage expresses flavors of dark fruits and aromas of intense blackberry fruit and cassis jam. In classic Russian River elegance, it is richly textured, balanced, and round. Pair this silky Pinot Noir with our savory and rich Braised Short Ribs.
Napa Valley, Merlot, 2014
This Merlot has a core of ripe, jammy berry and currant fruits that is beautifully framed by toasty oak. With layers of complexity, the plush red raspberry and cherry flavors and aromas leap from the glass. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga Cuvée, 2014
Enjoy the taste of Napa Valley Cabernet. With dark blackberries and a hint of cherries, the Chateau Montelena is well blended for a soft tannic finish and a touch of concentrated strawberries. Drinks well and pairs with salads, grilled fish, and our Prime steaks.
Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014
The grapes for this wine come from vineyards of distinction in Napa Valley. On the palate, the wine is round and full-bodied, full of blackberry flavor and a touch of red fruit intertwined with dusty tannins on the finish.
