Nose of sweetness, plum, currants, and a hint of cedar. Taste of sweetness, dry tannins, meaty, grassy, herby, fruity and low acidity. Aftertaste is jammy with tea note and spiced but doesn't linger too long. Taste exhibits more complexity than the nose.

Medium bodied. Dark fruits with a hint of tobacco. Smooth with an elegant finish. Great to pair with steak or just to enjoy, as we are tonight. Stag's Leap does not disappoint.

2012 vintage is very smooth and highly drinkable with steak. No after taste. Berries and earthy. It could’ve had a few more years but it is a very good wine drinkable now.

If we end up with food poisoning, blame tonight's delicious (yet suspect) feast at an empty BYOB Indian restaurant nestled in the heart of Little Italy. Unconventional pairing in water glasses.
