Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
Composed from 100% Petite Sirah, the 2017 Petite Sirah Ne Cede Malis was aged for 17 months in American oak, 28% new. Sporting a very deep purple-black color, it takes a little swirling and coaxing before it comes charging out of the glass with pronounced notions of stewed plums, boysenberries and blueberry pie plus hints of Chinese five spice, dried rose petals, chocolate box and vanilla pod with a waft of menthol. The full-bodied palate completely coats the mouth with spice-spiked black fruit preserves, framed by firm yet approachable tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with a whole myriad of opulent flavors. This is a Petite Sirah lover's paradise! Drink Date: 2022-2044.
Wine Tasting Notes
Offering a distinctive wine each vintage, Stags' Leap Winery Estate Ne Cede Malis SLD Napa Petite Sirah is elegant with incredible concentration and complexity. Revealing layers of blackberry, black cassis, and brambleberry fruit, delicately enhanced with savory notes of fresh chaparral herbs of mint, lavender, and sage, alongside an exotic black pepper spice. This single block blend is the purest expression of this extraordinary vineyard, exhibiting a multilayered full, mouth-coating, velvety-soft texture showcasing the age and character of the oldest vines on our estate. All finishing with incredible depth, plushness, and an alluring elusive character. Inviting in its youth but also meant for age-worthiness, decanting is suggested to allow the flavors to evolve and reveal the wine's complexity, grace, and elegance.
