Description

We love working with fruit from Stagecoach Vineyard as it highlights the diverse environments Syrah can flourish in. It brings a good contrast to Santa Barbara's cooler climate Syrah's.

Napa Valley's famed Stagecoach Vineyard is known for its steep hillsides and mountain-top geography invoking intense flavorful fruit. It's high elevations combined with warm daytime temperatures and lack of ocean influence make for fruit dominated by "mountainside" characteristics, with big tannins and complex flavors.

Dominated by dark fruit flavors and black pepper with a hint of vanilla and Kirsch liqueur, this syrah pairs beautifully with grilled meats and vegetables.

Wine Critic Reviews
"...deep inky hued wine...that offers beautiful fruit and richness while staying balanced and elegant. Cassis, blackberries, violets, lead pencil, and ground pepper all emerge on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a layered, velvety, mouthcoating texture, and a great finish. It's one sexy Syrah to drink over the coming 7-8 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "...loaded with blueberry jam, cloves, crème de cassis and chocolate. The 2018 has terrific energy framed by fierce Stagecoach tannins that need time to soften. The 2018 is a powerhouse, but a well balanced powerhouse..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
