2007 Stags' Leap merlot

Remember, it's Stags' Leap, not Stag's Leap. And it's not the same as Stags Leap, although both are located there.

Bright berry-red
velvety plums
faint, faint compote of prune and vanilla
and cocoa
elegant, rich, and lovely 

Why do fine merlots seem so queenly and serene? They just do, somehow. One searches for the right image to do them justice.
