Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Stagecoach Vineyard has over 600 acres planted to vines and is the largest contiguous vineyard in the Napa Valley. Located in the Atlas Peak appellation, the vineyard features steep hillsides and mountain-top geography, some of the rockiest soil in the Napa Valley, resulting in unique and intense flavors.
Production Notes
Arriving in small picking lugs from the vineyards, the clusters were hand sorted, de-stemmed and hand sorted again, berry-by-berry. A two-day cold soak was followed by primary fermentation in small, open-top stainless steel tanks. Following an extended maceration, the fruit was gently pressed and the wine moved to barrel for secondary fermentation. The wine was aged for 19 months in rare 100% New French Artisan Oak barrels with minimal racking. Multiple, blending trials, determined the final blend, which was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
