Red fruit, a little spice and toasty oak. Moderate acid with integrated tannins. Solid claret for $17.

5/22/2015 - Bob in NC Likes this wine: 85 points

Needed some time in the decanter. We gave it 2+ hours. Not overly special, but a decent Merlot with some earthiness and blueberry fruit, with a bit of black pepper on the nose and palate. Has semidry finish.

May have been a bit past peak. Lush, still a bit tannic. Fruit forward. Heavy black cheery, some tobacco. Decanted for more than an hour. Wouldn't wait any longer to drink.

Brought to dinner- cork & cow in Nashville. Paired great with a ribeye. Starting to show some nice tertiary characteristics (tobacco, dried blackberry and a little earthiness) in addition to the blackberry / cassis flavor profile. This was very smooth and food friendly. 90-91 range. Drank from a magnum.

2009 Steltzner Vineyards Cabernet Franc

Stags Leap District more

3/20/2015 - Cabfrancophile Likes this wine: 90 points

Spot on, captures both varietal and regional character. Black cherry and raspberry are forward, yet there's an underlying savory/umami flavor that defines a typical Cab Franc. Medium tannin, medium acidity, well-balanced. Finish shows additional hints of tar and graham cracker, similar to the '09 Malbec from this producer. A complete wine at a very fair price point.

Nice aromas of licorice, plum and dark cherry - smooth and easy - if not terribly complex - this is a very good weekday wine

Wine was very good with lamb. The blending has eliminated much of the tannin that was expected, and the wine, while young, was very drinkable. Very good restaurant served wine.

Nose of plum and black cherry fruit, dust, and touch of smoke, more of the same on the palate, showing its age, mouth filling, lots of fruit on the palate, almost chewy, medium/big body, long, long flavorful finish.

Inky ruby. Roses, blackberry jam, and leather nose. Medium to full bodied, cassis, blueberries, chocolate cherries, well integrated tannins, pepper, tobacco, and a slightly tart medium to long finish. Smooooth.

Cramped in the bottle for 37 years no wonder it needed to stretch out in the decanter. Upon opening, full nose of red currants, sous bois, old oak, and subtle hints of dried herbs and potpourri. The taste was closed down cranberry and red currants with hints of cured tobacco and sous bois like the nose. After a half hour, fully integrated, and a joy to drink. Medium weight with medium fruit framed with secondary elements, wonderful finish with weightless fruit and good grip. Kept improving. Tireless drinking.

2009 Steltzner Vineyards Malbec

Stags Leap District more

1/17/2015 - Cabfrancophile wrote: 90 points

Very good wine, interesting progression while open. Cola and blackberry at first pour, then more notes of cedar and petrol on top of the black fruit. Very refined and tasty, balance is outstanding (sub-14% abv, nice acidity driving the mid-palate, fine integrated tannins). Finishes cleanly, really hitting on the cedar and petrol. The only downside is that by the last glass the finish was more 'graham cracker' than anything else, a bit oaky or confected.

Oddly enough, struck me as a slightly higher end version of a Napa meritage I found last year at TJs. Not sure how much varietal character is here, but certainly is a pleasure to drink.

Rich dark color with aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberries and a hint of cherry-chocolate on the long finish. Up front fruit was enjoyable but atypical of some of the more subdued malbecs from Argentina.

12/21/2014 - Danthejuiceman Does not like this wine: NR

Wow, 13.5% alcohol. I was exited to try the 2009 Stags Leap District Martini Clone Cabernet Sauvignon. Only 125 cases produced.
Usually lower alcohol levels produce a more classically styled Cab.
Not this time! Fans of flabby, jammy fruit pie in a bottle will like this wine.
Another example of good grapes gone bad.

Took a shot on a bottle at auction for $15. Very glad I did! Nice aged Napa cab, fruit faded but present and classic, nice acidity, smooth tannins, got better over four hour period, suggests more life left. Too bad I only had one bottle.

Tasted and decanted. Big relief that this bottle wasn't bad, as the prior one was. Decent but not worth $40, especially for a Stag's Leap AVA wine. Thin and diluted red fruits, no complexity, ending with a weak finish.
