  • Here's a must-visit for anyone who will know the Napa, is theirs the CS who won the judgment of Paris and, 30 years later, he repeated the feat at the NY/2006. But the winery will in addition to your excellent wine icon, the building is different and very beautiful, the dedication of the Guide to explain absolutely everything, so with a didactic and joy made what was already great stay even better. And the wines? Amazing.

  • Incredible vista. Vik was a great host and source of info. The place is incredible, well worth a visit... and the wines will meet everyone's taste.
  • We have been members for about two years now they never disappoint! Kid friendly laid back staff always great wines.
  • Delicious cabernets representative of the Stags Leap AVA--a southeastern foothill region that basks in the afternoon light. The Fay is more approachable and fruit forward, the SLV more tightly wound and structured, the Cask attempts to blend the best characteristics of both. Recent vintages (drought/semi-drought years) have all been stellar. Though the '13 Cask received a near-perfect 99 RP and is therefore scarce (arguably a "greater" vintage), the '12-'15 vintages across the board are all very good. Price point is in line with well-known Napa cab producers as you're paying for the provenance (a Shafer Hillside Select from the same region will still run you $50-100 more vs. a Cask 23). Their claim to fame was the 1976 Judgement of Paris, along with Montelena's chardonnay, beat out similar French wines; also briefly featured in a wine manga called the Drops of God ;) There was a lot of worry after this place went corporate and sold out--some charm is gone, but the wine has not degraded. Not the best of Napa views as you're generally staring at a lifeless rock, but the close proximity to the vines does immerse you a bit in the terroir--which is further highlighted by the Fay and SLV. Generally friendly hosts if it's not too busy of a weekend. Stress and tensions may run high however if you're fighting the crowd (then again just like other wineries in Napa, or Disney Land). Reservations at least a week in advance is recommended, and required for larger parties. Go for the experience and collect for the provenance. Just don't buy the Artemis here because it's cheaper at Costco.
  • Amazing wines. The hostess/sommelier ran us through the wines and was awesome.
  • To Bob, Carla & Samantha: THANK YOU!! What a well-rounded event with Stag's Leap Wine Cellars! The team greeted us with wine in-hand and a view in-sight! We were IMMEDIATELY blown away by their hospitality. Their renovated tasting room is just gorgeous! Even the restrooms are jaw-dropping! You must have Carla take you through the wine hallways and hear the story of The Pendulum. It's lovely, absolutely lovely! The presentation of space & courses at dinner were so impressive. I wish it was my space to sell!
