2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard ®
A wine with a timeless quality, evoking life’s most luxurious pleasures. Sultry aromas of dark fruit, tobacco, and smoked meat, with notes of graphite. An expansive palate of berries, plum, and sassafras over layers of spice and minerality. Impeccable structure of leathery tannins enveloped by soft acidity, with an expressive, lingering finish.
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Stagecoach Vineyard is a study in determination, literally cultivated with a water witch and the removal of a billion tons of rock. Once considered unplantable, this world-class vineyard yields fruit of astonishing quality. The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine is grown in a block at the top of the property on rugged terrain, producing a lower yield of impressive intensity and structure.
