Description

“Coming from the Stagecoach Vineyard in Napa Valley, the 2013 Syrah Stagecoach Vineyard is another beautiful wine that shows how good this vintage was for Napa. Possessing fabulous purity, depth and concentration, with loads of black currants, lead pencil shavings, smoked earth and pepper, it might be the finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve tasted. Raised 20 months in 38% new French oak, it will evolve nicely for 2-4 years and keep through 2025.” ~ 93 points from Wine Advocate

"Big, black and bold, this burly wine from the mighty mountain where Stagecoach flourishes rumbles in smoky oak and leather. Tannins are grippy yet smoothly integrated enough to provide a plushness to the proceedings." 90 points from Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Notes
The wine’s deep opaque purple is mesmerizing. On the nose, it offers restrained notes of cassis, blueberry, vanilla bean, fennel, crushed rock, and acacia flower. Its rich, full-bodied entrance still manages to feel polished and pure on the palate, with excellent concentration and length.
