Stags Leap District's Legendary Vintners Collaborate on the Release of the Coveted Appellation Collection
September 24, 2013
The Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association (SLDW) announced today the October 15th release of its highly limited Appellation Collection – the only Napa Valley wine offering comprised entirely from a single appellation. This year’s coveted compilation features one bottle of 2009 Stags Leap District-designated Cabernet Sauvignon from each of 18 distinguished Association member wineries. The exclusive release will be made available from October 15th through December 15th, 2013.
Designed to showcase the world-class quality and distinctive characteristics of the District’s Cabernet Sauvignon, the Appellation Collection offers wine enthusiasts a one-of-a-kind opportunity to taste their way through the renowned Stags Leap District appellation and experience the region’s 'sense of place.' A must-have for wine lovers and collectors alike, this compilation represents the best the region and its gifted vintners have to offer. These critically acclaimed and rare wines are no longer (or never were) available in the broad market.
"The 2009 vintage enjoyed even, steady ripening in Stags Leap District, and produced magnificent wines with exquisite balance and complexity,” said Michael Beaulac, president of the Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association and General Manager and Winemaker at Pine Ridge Vineyards. “This year’s Appellation Collection provides a fantastic opportunity to explore the signature power and elegance of our region’s wines.”
The 2009 Appellation Collection includes one bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from each of the following Stags Leap District Winegrowers' wineries: Baldacci Family Vineyards, Chimney Rock Winery, Cliff Lede Vineyards, Clos Du Val, Hartwell Vineyards, Ilsley Vineyards, Lindstrom Wines, Malk Family Vineyards, Pine Ridge Vineyards, Regusci Winery, Robinson Family Vineyards, Shafer Vineyards, Silverado Vineyards, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, Stags' Leap Winery, Steltzner Vineyards, Taylor Family Vineyards and Terlato Family Vineyards.
The 2009 Appellation Collection is priced at $1,599.00 for the 18-bottle set. Additional sales tax of 8% applies to purchases made in California, and in various other states to the extent required by law. The Stags Leap District Winegrowers Association is the exclusive retailer of the Appellation Collection, and the only American Viticultural Association or appellation offering a vintage-specific assemblage of its Cabernet Sauvignon.
