Stag's Leap "RED" blend? I have found the website before but can't seem to find a link today. A friend raved about it but I haven't found it in stores and am wondering if it is worth the trouble of finding it.

    Please specify if you are referring to Stag's Leap Winery, or Stag's Leap Wine Cellars? Both of them make quite a few reds. Winery makes a host of wines, the most unique of which is a petite sirah, IMO. Wine Cellars makes mostly cabernets.

      Not sure. I was able to find the website before but I cannot find it via google.

          I checked there... it has a separate site. I can't find it. Probably because it is named "RED" and when you google that, well, every red wine comes up.

            Perhaps it is a wine from the Stag's Leap DISTRICT?

            If you can obtain a little more info, we can chase it down...call the restaurant, check your web history,
            etc.

            Chimney Rock and Quixote -- wineries in the SLD -- both make a red blend wine called Red.
            And the very famous Cask 23 from Stags' Leap Wine Cellars is marked Proprietary Red.

              Maria - that is what I was thinking, but from the way my friend described it I interpreted it to be from SLW or SLWC. No big deal, I will ask him when he is returns from vacation.
