The grapes for this Cab come from two mountain vineyards on opposite sides of the Napa Valley. Stagecoach Vineyard is located on the rocky, volcanic soils of Atlas Peak and Corbett Vineyards are located sit on a rocky hillside just north of the town of St. Helena in the Spring Mountain appellation. Both of these vineyards are approximately 1,000 feet above the Napa Valley floor with the mountainous terroir providing exceptional structure to the Cab grapes harvested there.
The two vineyard lots were vinified separately prior to blending. After a two day cold soak, a combination of punchdowns and pumpovers were employed during fermentation to gain maximum extraction from the skins without harsh tannins.
Enjoy now through 2025 with proper cellaring
