The San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition has awarded our 2009 Promenade Cabernet Sauvignon a Gold Medal in Blind Tasting Competition. Over 7500 wines were in competition in 2016 and we are thrilled that the judges bestowed the Gold Medal on our Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon. Salute!
May 2, 2013:
The Sunset Magazine International Wine Competition has awarded a GOLD Medal to our 2008 Promende La Joyeuse Harmonie Meritage. We are truly thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to our Meritage, the fastest growing wine type in the USA. Our Red Meritage is a classic Bordeaux Blend in the old world tradition, combining hearty Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), fragrant Cabernet Franc (20%) and luscious Merlot (40%). The result is a Joyous Harmony of flavors; And so with a nod to our French forbearers, we've dubbed our Meritage with a French moniker: La Joyeuse Harmonie, Meritage. We think that's fitting. don't you?
The results are in! And the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition has awarded Promenade 2008 La Joyeuse Harmonie Meritage the Double Gold Medal in blind tasting competition. With over 5,500 wines tasted in blind competition this award is reserved for a select few wine entries in the competiton (less than 5% of entered wines) that garner unanimous recognition in blind tasting from judges.
