“A medium-bodied red with chocolate, hazelnut and berry character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a juicy finish. Nicely put together. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling, June 2021
For Christophe Paubert, Winemaker and General Manager at Stags’ Leap Winery, the identity of a wine is found through the terroir. Christophe’s career has spanned the industry from sales to winemaking, and his impressive background includes positions at Chateau d’Yquem and Gruaud-Larose as well as projects in Chile, Spain and Washington State. But it was the terroir of Stags’ Leap that drew him to California.
