"SPEAKING OF LEVENDI, I ADORE THEIR ’06 STAGECOACH VINEYARD $70 CABERNET SAUVIGNON

One of the owners of Levendi came as a guest of another attendee to one of my wine tasting/dinners last year and later sent me a bottle of their ‘06 STAGECOACH VINEYARD Napa Cabernet. I tried the wine and was most impressed and gave it a 95 and feel its one of the best Cabernets around in the under $100 category.

Alas, I have not seen the wine in the general L.A. area and certainly not at a discount but you can order it directly from the winery by GOOGLING or using WINE-SEARCHER for their address and ordering it directly. The winery describes the wine with this colorful and honest description, “From the Stagecoach Vineyard high on the eastern volcanic ridge above Napa, comes this rich and decadent, limited production Cabernet Sauvignon. The vivid red soils and rocky slopes come together to produce a wine with an aroma of sweet blackberry and cassis fruit that carries over into a superbly balanced and polished palate. 750 cases produced.”

Winery Notes:
From the Stagecoach Vineyard high on the eastern volcanic ridge above Napa, comes this rich and decadent, limited production Cabernet Sauvignon. The vivid red soils and rocky slopes come together to produce a wine with an aroma of sweet blackberry and cassis fruit that carries over into a superbly balanced and polished palate. Surrounded by a refined structure of the finest French oak, this Cabernet Sauvignon drinks well now and boasts the refined tannins that give it strong promise for years to come.

Tasting Notes
Deep, elegant nose of blackberry and brambly notes. Aromas of wild sage and new expensive leather. An elegant bell shaped palate starts with gentle fruit in front, builds to a richly-textured blackberry fruit centered mid-palate. Finishes with beautiful, ripe tannins.
