Stag’s Leap Napa County Merlot, 2010

008A huge disappointment despite the expert imploring us to buy a bottle.  Expensive (for our pockets), from a noted winery, much lauded by the wine establishment, but flat, tannic, chalky, flimsy bouquet, pasty finish, a poor sipper, dismal with a superb stuffed pork tenderloin.  Rather than go on about it I’ll just say never again.

 

Price: $34 USD (and not worth the duty free allotment…)

Market Liquidity: Live and learn.
