This beautifully ballanced Syrah sourced from the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak showcases the elegance of the verietal and unique characteristics of this mountain vineyard.

Tasting Notes
The 2021 Syrah from Stagecoach Vineyard is an intense, vibrant wine with aromas of plum, black currant, graphite, black peppercorn, juniper, cinnamon bark, and lilac. The entry is silky and round, with flavors of licorice, peppercorn, fresh leather, sour cherry, and cacao. The finely textured tannins provide lift and length, and run through to the long finish. This wine has a wonderful tension of sweet and savory notes, and plenty of evolution in the glass. It is drinking well now, and will age effortlessly through the mid- and long- term.

Latin Translation: From Soil to Bottle
When asked to describe the Stagecoach Vineyard, we first respond with a two-word answer: “Extreme Terroir.” The word “extreme” applies not just to our steep hillsides and mountain-top geography, but also to the extreme levels of meticulous attention paid to growing the fruit and the extreme, intense flavors that result. We use “terroir” in the true French sense, invoking the special characteristics that geography gives to grapes, including soil, climate, and farming techniques.
