Tasting Notes
This wine is packed with rich flavors of black cherry, blackberry and currant. The oak and tannins integrate nicely into the fruit flavors underscoring the beautiful complexity and varietals character of the wine.

Vineyard Source
The Following breakdown of the four vineyards contributing the Stanley’s fruit:

1. Price Vineyard: 1+ acre planting, contiguous to Spottswoode – early ripening. Low yield production with excellent sugar/acid ratio.
2. Walther Vineyard: 2+ acres planting near Caymus Vineyards– alluvial canyon soil. Grace Family clone – close planting for added stress.
3. Corbett Vineyard: 1+ acre also adjacent to the Moffett Vineyard. We planted this vineyard ourselves in 1987.
4. Gemstone Vineyard: Yountville AVA-An amazing vineyard which has 5 clones of Cabernet along with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. Most of this wine is designated for our ultra premium Red Table Wine.
5. Gonser vineyard: 2 acre vineyard adjacent to Grace Family Vineyard.
