85 points "The least expensive wine, the 2010 Merlot Napa (25,000 cases produced) sees about one-third new oak. It reveals a certain austere, reserved character despite being 93% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a correct, straightforward effort displaying berry fruit, earth and coffee bean nuances. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. I have always thought of this winery as a Petite Sirah specialist, but they are now also producing cuvees of Cabernet Sauvignon, a proprietary red and a couple of Merlots. Stags' Leap Winery first made its reputation with its Petite Sirahs, and they now offer two cuvees of California’s most underrated varietal." Best 2013-2019
