The 2017 Stags Leap District is another excellent release from Cliff Lede in this vintage. It opens to a wonderful aromatic profile of ripe blackberries, black cherries and hints of boysenberries, which are accented by spices, tobacco, fresh tilled soil￼￼ and wildflowers all coming together beautifully. On the palate this possesses a medium to full body with excellent overall balance, combining ripe fruit and lovely underlying acidity that provides a sense of freshness through the long, supple finish. This is a beautifully made wine that should go on to evolve gracefully over the next decade or even longer.
