"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 Stagecoach Vineyard slips effortlessly, sensuously out of the glass with a gorgeous perfume of baking spices, candied violets, dark chocolate and menthol with a core of crème de cassis, cigar box and warm plums plus a waft of truffles. Full-bodied and laden with generous black fruit preserves and fragrant earth layers, it has a solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and layered." (WA)

"Very rich and ripe fruit in the blackcurrant and cherry spectrum with a wealth of deeply ripe, succulent and concentrated blackberry, boysenberry and plum-flavored fruit, framed in chocolate and spicy oak. Bold, juicy and ripe finish. Drink or hold." (JS)

"The flagship of the estate, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 is all Cabernet from the Stagecoach Vineyard in the southern part of the valley. Aged all in new oak, it offers a ripe, sexy perfume of blueberries, cassis, graphite, and toasted spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with rocking purity of fruit, it has plenty of sweet tannins but is balanced and elegant on the palate." (JD)
