2016 COURTNEY BENHAM MELANGE DU BAUM STAGS LEAP DISTRICT
Stags Leap District produces some of the most powerfully captivating and intensely concentrated Bordeaux grapes in Napa Valley, but it’s rare for us to be able to offer one at an affordable price. The region became more recognized after the 1976 Judgement in Paris when Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet bested first-growth Bordeaux from Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Haut-Brion. Courtney Benham’s 2016 Melange du Baum perfectly reflects everything that makes the area desirable.
Stags Leap is recognized for its soils composed of clay sediments and volcanic deposits. These soils, combined with the heat reflecting off the rocky palisades, gives a balance to the cooling breeze from the South and makes the terroir genuinely unique.
Winemaker Courtney Benham has three decades of experience, and his talent for selecting vineyards of distinction is highly evident in this wine. The 2016 vintage is rich in supple dark fruits, brilliant complexity, and silky tannins.
