Stagecoach vineyard is one of the most iconic and important in all of Napa. With natural attributes and high altitude, it’s a very special place with some of the best fruit in the valley, exhibiting unmistakable terroir, richness and intensity.
The grapes are cold soaked to extract the intense deep purple hues and then aged in new American Oak barriques for 24 months before bottling.

Rich dark meats and exotic spices are a good match for the generous fruit. Grilled or braised beef, lamb or game meats, 5-spice pork, grilled vegetables, and full-flavoured burgers..
If you can possibly wait, try decanting for 1-3 hours to open up this treasure. It can cellar for 5-15 years.
