Merlot Stagecoach Vineyard


Challenged by the rocky volcanic soils of this mountainous vineyard site, the vines at Stagecoach produce fruit of extraordinary quality and intensity. This meticulously farmed property is hand-picked according to our winemaker’s specifications. Loaded with rich ripe fruit and spice notes with touches of toasty oak, our Merlot has a nice grip from fine tannins on the lengthy finish.

Merlot, Stagecoach Vineyard

89 Points Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine, November 2013

“Moderately fruity and nicely complex with ripe cherry notes set against suggestions of slight herbaceousness and glimmers of black olives in its outgoing aromas, this full and solid wine shows a touch of fleshy suppleness at entry before it firms up under its slightly astringent impost. Built along tougher lines than most Merlots, this one can age well for a half decade and more.”
