2015 Stagecoach Syrah
"...powerful and dense from the very first taste, Layers of dense, unctuous Syrah fruit find a compelling counterpoint in the mountain structure of Stagecoach. Full-throttle and yet impressively well-balanced for such a big wine, the 2015 has a lot to offer. A closing blast of blackberry jam, lavender, wild flowers and smoke leaves a lasting impression." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...It has a higher toned, floral style as well as notes of violets, blueberries, sappy herbs, and spring flowers. With medium-bodied richness, a light, elegant texture, and excellent purity of fruit, drink it over the coming 6-7 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
We were lucky enough to start working with fruit from the acclaimed Stagecoach Vineyard in 2007. Primarily known in Napa for producing fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon, the extreme terroir, mountain terrain, elevation and micro-climates lend themselves to produce a wide variety of other varietals as well. Because of this, we love working with Stagecoach Syrah as it brings distinct aromas and flavors that contrast our Santa Barbara County produced Syrahs.
