Miner Stagecoach Vineyard Merlot 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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 tasty oak, our Merlot has a nice grip from fine tannins on the lengthy finish.
Sinewy in leather and dusty tannin, this is a well-integrated, full-bodied and earthy wine with forceful flavors of baked plum and dark cherry. It broods with secondary elements of sage, clove and tobacco.
