“This wine was aged 16 months in 30% new French oak and 70% one-year-old barrels. We decided that the Stagecoach vineyard needed additional barrel aging to help marry the minerality of the wine with the intense fruit, thus producing a wine of elegance, finesse and ability to age gracefully for years to come.” – Jeff Cohn
Spiced pineapple and coconut crème are intertwined with wet stone, orange blossom and sweet butter. On the palate the wine is viscous and opulent, but carries itself elegantly through the finish. This is classic Marsanne, with flavors of orange blossom, apricots and peaches that are highlighted by honeysuckle, candle wax, bitter almond and hints of clover.
