Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored kitchen sink blend from Stags' Leap opens with a mild blackberry and plum bouquet with a hint of rubber cement. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle graphite with notes black currant, red cherry and oak. We also detected hints of black raspberry, black tea and milk chocolate mixed in. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins and flavors drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with a Sunday roast. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Reflective of the winery's ability to combine power with elegance, the 2016 Investor is rich and expressive with blueberry, bramble berry, wild raspberry, prune and sweet baking spices, alongside intriguing notes of white pepper, camphor and tar, with touches of savory chaparral brush, like fresh mint and wild purple rose. Generous mouth pleasing chewy tannins envelop the palate finishing with juicy, mouthwatering acidity. Enjoyable now and can be cellared for 5-10 years.
