Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


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."


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.
Stagecoach Vineyard has become one of the most renowned vineyards in Napa Valley. It rises 900 feet above sea level and continues to climb to nearly 1,850 feet at its highest elevation. With south-facing slopes filled with shallow, volcanic soils, the site’s rugged terroir is ideal for growing intensely colored Cabernet Sauvignon grapes rich with mineral and mountain flavors.
With grapes from Stagecoach Vineyard this wine is tasting great and will go on to be another of our classic Stagecoach Cabernet.

The ingredients are wrapped in puff pastry and baked. For something that's surprisingly easy to make, albeit time-consuming, it looks like a million dollars and tastes like heaven. The dish can easily be completely prepped a day in advance and then slid into the oven for 30 minutes to bake before serving.
