Your wine from Stagecoach Vineyard in Napa Valley showcases the expressive qualities of an elegant variety. The Stagecoach property itself is a study in determination, cultivated by a bandit, a water witch and the removal of 1 billion tons of rock. Once considered unplantable, this world-class vineyard spans multiple microclimates dotting rugged terrain, yielding fruit of astonishing quality. Winemaker Patrick Saboe sourced the fruit for this Premiere Napa Valley lot from his very favorite block, E1. This block encompasses low-yielding vines that deliver enticing aromatics of red fruit and soft berry, gradually giving way to refined minerality and light herbaceous notes for a wine of unparalleled elegance. After an extended maceration, this single-barrel lot was aged in legendary Taransaud French oak, using 50% new oak for a wine of complexity and nuance. A special lot of wine showcasing outstanding character, it will be finished as 100% Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Franc without the addition of blending components, for a true expression of variety and vineyard.
