Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Made from grapes grown on a select block of volcanic soil in the famous "Stagecoach" Stags Leap vineyard high above Rutherford in Napa, this wine defines "Cabernet Sauvignon."


Tasting Notes

The intense opulent fruit on the nose is presented in a graceful, dignified fashion.

The palate has a similarly pure character, with a sleek composition and a chic style. Pure fruit, with rising tannins and Rutherford-dust in the midpalate, the character of this wine is structured and sophisticated.

The tannin is exquisitely integrated and there is a great harmony throughout with good backbone of tannin, fine acids and a lovely balance showing substance and style.

This wine defines fine Cabernet and will continue to improve in the bottle for many years to come.
