Appearance dark inky purple
Aromas dark cherry with a hint of chocolate and vanilla while having a light hint of earthy oak
Palate intense dark tart cherry and vanilla upfront. The mid palate has the Stagecoach earthiness and volcanic influence that is strong. A long lingering finish of tannic tart cherries and chocolate with a hint of earthiness and oak.
Food Pairing Suggestions
This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is meant for food pairings that match its body and aromatic characteristics. If paired properly, it can produce the meal of a lifetime. With its depth of acid and tannins, it will pair well with fattier meats like beef steaks, beef and pork roasts, venison, lamb and hamburgers. Experiment with mushroom dishes and meals seasoned with herbs and pepper. Hard cheeses are a nice compliment too.
This wine will age well through 2030 and beyond

About The Vineyard
As the saying goes, location, location, location! This famed vineyard, perhaps one of the most sought after vineyards in Napa Valley, is the fruit source for this little hidden gem. It was recently purchased by Gallo for $180M, which means the fabulous small lot wines previously hand-crafted from this vineyard by producers like Blackbird, Pahlmeyer, Aaron Pott’s private label and of course, Angelo Cellars, may go away once their contracts expire. So we say, be in the moment and enjoy it while you can.
