One of our most sought-after Cabernets and one of our perennial high scorers (94 points Heimoff and 93 points Wine Enthusiast for the 2013 vintage), the 2014 Stagecoach Cabernet is a viscerally thrilling wine that shows amazingly well now (fitting for the earliest harvest in Napa Valley history!) and will age beautifully. For the uninitiated, this epic vineyard straddles Atlas Peak and Pritchard Hill high above the Napa Valley, and is the source of vineyard-designate bottlings from some of Napa’s most esteemed producers as well as a source for those looking to add power and structure to their overall Napa Valley blends. M block is at the heart of Stagecoach, located at one of the highest elevation sites in the valley and ground zero for many a famous Cabernet with a triple digit price tag and numerous mid-90s scores from top critics. Like Lots 525 and 597 before it, today’s release is a mountain wine that exhibits power and elegance, and a showcase of what we do best – luxury wine for a fraction of the price.
