Description

"...bursts from the glass with youthful, rambunctious scents of baked blueberries, warm cassis and black forest cake plus nuances of cedar chest, dark chocolate, candied violets and licorice. Full-bodied, the concentrated black berry preserves flavors are well-supported by firm, superbly ripe tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing very long and perfumed." ~ Wine Advocate 

"...It's similarly colored to the classic Napa Valley release but has more dark fruits, earthy minerality, underbrush, and tobacco notes. With medium-bodied richness, a focused, concentrated mid-palate, good acidity, and a great finish, it's another incredibly classy wine from this team that's going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...powerful, dense and savory, with plenty of the mountain character that gives these wines such a distinctive signature. Tobacco, incense, cedar, sage, mint and licorice all develop nicely in the glass. This is a fairly restrained, perfumed style for Stagecoach that emphasizes persistence over size alone." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"Herbal tea and cedar give this wine an earthy, savory profile that is followed by clove and black currant. Entirely varietal, it is hearty and robust in tannin and power, with bold, full-bodied texture and weight, the oak intertwined and pronounced." ~ Wine Enthusiast
