"Located over 1200 feet above Oakville below Atlas Peak, the panoramic Biale Block looks out over the entire Napa Valley from Carneros to Calistoga. Planted to old Biale clones on old fashioned St. George rootstock, this vineyard project that was started with Stagecoach managing partner, Jan Krupp, is the most serious work in the modern era to keep the legacy of Napa Zinfandel going strong. As we like to say, “They ain’t making any more old vines in Napa.”
Steep rugged terrain, all day sunlight, and with great neighbors on Pritchard Hill above and Oakville below, Stagecoach is an ideal site. It now produces a Napa style Zinfandel of power and poise. Blackberry, raspberry jam, minerals, dried brush, baking spices and toffee flavors are held firmly on the palate by elegant tannins and juicy acidity. The beautiful 2007 vintage of this mountain grown Zinfandel is one for drinking AND keeping so be sure to get enough to do both."
