Intentionally crafted from Malbec and Syrah, the grapes for this impeccably dry rosé were meticulously farmed on Bald Mountain Ranch atop Mount Veeder.
Here, vivid aromas bring to mind blood orange, tart cherry, citrus zest and hibiscus flower alongside notes of red cherries, pomegranate, dry berries and white tea.
The wine is bright and focused on the palate, with a vibrant acidity and medium body. With an ethereal finish lasts and lasts, this is a true wine lover’s rosé with a South of France soul and a Napa Valley attitude.
Built around a rich core of blackberries, butterscotch and dried cherries, the 2016 Cabernet Franc vintage from the Prichard Hill part of the Stagecoach Vineyard reveals complex aromas of Cassis, violets and tobacco. The 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, both from Stagecoach Vineyard as well as the 5% Merlot, adds a nice mid and back palate experience complementing the well balanced front palate. The wine is medium bodied with a beautiful texture, polished tannins and balanced acidity.
The 2018 Rosé is in a tip of the cap to Old World nuance and sophistication. Our 2018 Napa Valley Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon reveals whispers of tart cherries, complimented by subtle hints of apricots.
The 2014 On Q "Appassionata" Cabernet is dense, dark and inky blue/purple in the glass. Dark fresh fruit, with huckleberry, blackberry, plum, red cherry and violet, lead the charge out of the glass. As it slowly uncoils, subtle notes of cocoa nib, star anise, fennel bulb, and graphite - finishing with lingering hints of baking spices such as coriander, cinnamon and vanilla inter-mixed which chocolate and espresso stemming from the well-integrated French oak barrels where it underwent extended elevage for 28 months. As the second, third and fourth wave of flavors burst forth on your palate, you begin to comprehend how the fragrant bouquet and palate are working together to create a memorable tasting experience. Extremely approachable for a young wine, polished tannins, as well as seductively promising complexities yet to come, the structure is intertwined with tart acidity induced by long hang-time from the cools hills of Coombsville. Drinkable now but will benefit with more bottle aging and should drink well for 20-25 years
The 2015 "Appassionata" displays an incredibly opaque, dark purple core with hints of magenta and ruby on the rim. The nose delights with aromas of black currant, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, and violets over complex secondary notes of cacao, tobacco, a touch of wet leather, crushed earth, a kiss of ground coffee, finely crushed stones, vanilla bean and exotic baking spices. This forward-style Cabernet will drink at its finest over the next 5-7 years.

The 2017 “Improvisation” displays an entirely opaque, dark purple-black core with hints of magenta on the rim. The nose is enticing and powerful, showing off intoxicating liqueur notes of créme de cassis and kirsch, alongside ripe black cherry, blackberries, fresh-picked violets, cacao, baking spices, vanilla and coffee bean, tobacco leaf, and crushed stones. The palate is full-bodied and mouth-coating with immense layers of dark fruit that are unabashedly rich and ripe. All this, however, is proportionately balanced by waves of persisting freshness and a touch of acidity that keeps it from entering a sappy / cloying territory that many “Cult Cabs” can’t seem to shake. This forward style wine will drink at its finest over the next 5-7 years with proper storage, but it is delicious right now and needs no further aging to enjoy.

The first vintage of Downbeat Chardonnay is sourced high up in the Mayacamas Mountains overlooking Napa Valley on Bald Mountain Ranch . This special vineyard produces a Chardonnay that is light and refreshing with notes of baked brioche, hazelnut, apple, nutmeg and vanilla. Lemon leads on the palate with warm apple pie and cream. A clean mineral finish of chalk and limestone leave a light impression and you wanting for more. Pairs perfectly with a bright salad, chicken, fatty fish or any nutty cheese.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon displays notes of prunes, spice cake, plum pudding and blueberry preserves with touches of red currant jelly, dried herbs, tobacco and olives. Full-bodied, firm and chewy and with tons of fruit at the core, it finishes long and spicy.
The 2014 Malbec, from Stagecoach, is superb. Boisterous, exuberant and flamboyant to the core, the Malbec hits the palate with serious fruit intensity. Scents of rose petal, lavender, sweet spice and new French oak are front and center, with more mineral and savory notes develop with time in the glass. This is an especially opulent style with tons of near and medium term appeal. Drink 2016-2022.
