The Stag Horn - Winter 2013



Rare are times when great things are repeated back to back, but after a fabulous 2012 vintage, 2013 has done just that. Every year as we near harvest, we dance with Mother Nature. Being in the Coombsville appellation of Napa, we are at the base of Mt. George and experience a slightly cooler microclimate, which develops smaller berries with greater skin-to-juice ratio. That is a good thing with more intensity, color, character, and flavor. As the weather changes with shorter days and colder nights (which is kind of our “horns of a dilemma”), we wait a little bit longer for the perfect balance of sugar, acid and flavor in our grapes. We did and 2013 will be another stunning tear well worth the wait until the release in 2015.


We anticipate releasing our 2012 Silver Stag Cabernet Sauvignon in the fall of 2014. It is rich and elegant with concentrated flavors of cassis, blueberries, blackberries, dark chocolate, superb mid-palate flavors, and a long, balanced finish. So special is the 2012 vintage that we will be offering for the first time a Reserve Silver Stag Cabernet Sauvignon releasing in 2015.

The Parsley family would like to thank you for your interest in Silver Stag wines and for your continued support.

With warmest holiday wishes,
Harry and Ellen Parsley
