2011 Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage   |  2013 2012 2011 

Dark red in color with aromas of black cherry and red fruit leading into notes of espresso and char with a hint of sage. The initial taste on the palate is a forward hit of juicy red fruit followed by blackberry and finishing with more savory flavors of toast and black tea. 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. Hand harvested October 28, 2011, at 25.8 Brix and October 29, 2011, at 24.2 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 2013. The wine will be bottle aged nearly 2 years prior to its release in Spring, 2015.
