2012 Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage   |  2013 2012 2011 

Dark red in color with aromas of blackberries, violets, plum, toffee, toasted barrel, bacon fat, and warm spices. The palate is very decadent with fine-grained tannins and a slightly chewy finish. Winery Exclusive



The fruit for this wine comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard in Atlas Peak, from one of the highest blocks, block 8, with southern exposure. The Cabernet franc is a French clone also from Stagecoach vineyard block I. Both harvested October 29, 2012, at 25.4 Brix 25.6 brix, respectively.

The fruit cluster sorted before a two-day cold soak. After inoculation with French yeast, the wine underwent small-batch fermentation, with gentle pumpovers 2-3 times per day. In barrel, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was racked twice before bottling in June 2014. The wine will be bottle aged nearly 2 years prior to its release in Spring 2016.
