2014 Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon
Fess Parker was a man of great optimism and curiosity. A man who possessed an uncanny ability to envision what was possible in any given scenario. Accordingly, he was ever eager to embrace the next challenge. It stands to reason then that a desire to breach boundaries is woven into the fabric of the next generation of Parkers. Addendum represents that next frontier to be tamed, a continuation of the adventure.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers up pronounced blackberries, black plums and cassis notes with hints of pencils shavings, bay leaves and black soil plus a waft of violets. Full-bodied and firmly framed with ripe, grainy tannins and a seamless backbone, the generous black berry flavors are layered with herb and spice box nuances, giving a long, multilayered finish." ~ Wine Advocate
"Aged 28 months in 40% new French oak, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) sports a saturated ruby/purple color to go with layered, sexy notes of black raspberries, toasted bread, spice-box and licorice. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and yet still playing in the forward, charming nature of the 2014 vintage, drink it anytime over the coming 15 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
"Soft, round and approachable in its fruit-forward succulence and full-bodied richness, this is a well-made complex wine. Red cherry and vanilla dominate secondary elements of cedar, leather and cola, finishing with a length of clove." ~ Wine Enthusiast
