NAPA VALLEY The road leading to the 240 acre Stags’ Leap Winery Estate is just off the famed Silverado Trail on the east side of the Napa Valley just below the jagged cliffs of the Vaca Mountain Range. Without a GPS, the turn into the private drive can easily be missed. This place of extreme natural beauty is a valley surrounded by the hillsides covered with vines and the rugged craggy façade of the famed Stags’ Leap Palisade. It is stunning in its geological stature and has quite an imposing environmental personality. First established in 1893 by Horace Chase, of the famed banking fortune, the property was carved from the Napa wilderness as a country retreat for the Chase family. The 20th century with all its challenges forced many changes for the Chase family, but the ranch endured. Today, the estate’s 90 acres are planted to cabernet sauvignon and merlot Napa Valley’s signature grapes. However the fame of the estate is anchored on a unique heritage parcel named Ne Cede Malis, the Chase Family motto “Never Give Into Misfortune”. The composition of the block contains 18 different varieties with a dominate presence of Petite Sirah along with classic Rhone varietals such as Syrah, Mouvedre and Viogner contribute to this 19th century old world style field blend. Ne Cede Malis distinction is derived from harvesting and fermenting all the varietals together at the same time. It is aged for 14 months in American Oak Barrels for a unique red wine blend. What is also of particular interest is that much of the original plant material is still bearing fruit and represents vines which are more than 80 years old. This wine is the sum of all the complex environment affecting the fruit grown in this vineyard.
