WINE REVIEW: Stags’ Leap Winery, ‘The Investor’, Napa Valley Red Wine, CA ($60)
by Andrew Chalk
From the wires...
“Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift can be tough, especially for the dad who has “everything.” To make shopping easier for your readers, I’d love to recommend a classic wine that’s sure to impress every vino-loving dad! While many celebrated Father’s Day over Zoom or FaceTime last year, toasting with Dad in person on June 20th will make for the ultimate gift. Stags’ Leap Winery’s 2018 The Investor Napa Valley Red Wine (SPR $60) complements any Father’s Day celebration and beyond as summer nears and outdoor entertaining with more loved ones becomes possible.
Plush and inviting, this red blend is the ultimate crowd pleaser. Expressive notes of blackberry, black currant, macerated blueberries, and wild black plum are joined by baking spice notes of cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and clove. Whether Dad chooses to drink immediately or cellar it for a few years, he’s sure to love every rich, mouthwatering sip.”
