Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The latest legendary Cabernet from Bill with grapes grown on a select block of volcanic soil in the famous "Stagecoach" vineyard high above Stags Leap in Napa.
Powerful mountain Cabernet with elegance of perfume and cedar framed by great aging structure. Concentrated on the palate with powerful yet supple tannin. Flavors of dark berry, cardamom and a hint of tobacco lead into a long and flavorful finish supported by warm and spicy oak notes.
Only 165 cases produced - This wine is reserved exclusively for wine club members.
Stagecoach Vineyard defines "Napa Cabernet Sauvignon". Growing well above the fog line, the vineyards are drenched in sunlight from daybreak to sunset producing fruit of opulence and density.
Our 2014 Stagecoach vintage produced powerful reds that have since aged to elegant examples of their variety. So too did this Cabernet which, when first bottled in 2016, showed the wild side of this historic vineyard but now with a few years in bottle it is coming into its own as a superb example of Napa mountain Cab.
French Oak for 22 months, approximately 50% new, 50% one use, followed by three years of cellar ageing in bottle prior to release.
