stags leap wine cellars/ mark schroeder/ glazer

A long time, important winery for the early to mid 70's Napa  not to be confused with Stags Leap Winery... this one has been around for a long time.

Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Napa grassy and herbal... not a subtle wine...

Karia Chardonnay Napa 200 some creaminess and acidity.. not the oak bomb that I was expecting. may be starting to show a little age..

Hands of Time 2008 Napa a cab, merlot and syrah blend.. the cab stands out the most but the finish was a little weak for the money

Artemis 2007 Cabernet from Napa.. softer style.. lush tannins.. pretty wine..

Fay Vineyard 2007 Bright cherry and light red fruits. and not as tannic as I was expecting..showing very well

SLV (Stags Leap Vineyards) estate 2005. vanilla and sweet berry and lush

SLV Estate 2007,, just as lush as the 05 without the fruitiness... tighter... but still surprisingly supple for an 07

Cask 23 the best of the best 2007  ..huge and big..lots of mouthfeel and not as tannic as it is heavy... and of the lot from fay and slv vineyards.
