Cliff Lede Current Releases
Established in 2002, Cliff Lede Vineyards encompasses sixty acres in the famed Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Our state-of-the-art gravity-flow winery boasts a berry-by-berry sorting system and conical tanks commissioned using a design inspired by the tanks of Château Latour. One tank per vineyard block ensures each lot evolves at its own pace, and acres of caves with single-layer barrel storage ensure access to each barrel at all times. No corner has been cut.
Supple, supportive tannins create a velvety texture and lengthy finish for this elegant, mineral-laced wine.
With the cut and color of yellow sapphire, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc shines brilliantly in the glass and tempts with alluring aromas of lemon verbena, fall persimmon, and fresh white peaches.
...candied violet and black cherry flavors dance on the palate revealing ripe, supple tannins...
Inspired by the right bank blends of Bordeaux, this blend is built on the silky suppleness of Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon adding structure, complexity and richness.
After a silky entry, the volume is turned up by bright acidity, highlighting the darker fruit notes of blueberry and cassis and giving the wine a rocking attitude.
Sold in a handsome six-bottle wood box, this wine can be cellared for years to come. This seamless expression of fruit, spice, and earth is highlighted by the minerality of crushed rocks, reminiscent of the volcanic rock of the Poetry Vineyard.
Available to our allocation list members in September.
