Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Clone 7

Pritchard Hill / Atlas Peak AVA, Napa

This vineyard produces wines of great structure and intensity. Stagecoach is regarded as one of the most unique vineyards in Napa. The grapes from this vineyard are grown for the who’s who of Napa. They produce wines which regularly score in the high 90’s with Parker or Wine Spectator. They tend to be very big and bold with great structure, often compared to the Diamond Creek AVA wines. Full bodied and intensely flavoured, these wines are not for the faint of heart. They will age indefinitely.

Chardonnay

Beckstoffer Carneros Creek Vineyard / Carneros AVA,  Napa

We are again proud to offer Chardonnay from the highly regarded Beckstoffer Carneros Creek Vineyard. If you like the big, rich, tropical fruit chards that have tremendous structure and a long finish, this is your wine.  The wine undergoes full malo lactic fermentation, aged sur lees in new Burgundian oak barrels. This is a serious wine often compared to the great Corton Charlemagne or Monrachet’s of Burgundy. This is not a summer sipper to quaff by the pool. It is very concentrated, with rich cream and elegant oak nuances.
