Napa Valley Vintners #OpenTheCellar (March 23-25, 2021)



Love Napa Valley mountain cabernets?  Looking for wines you won't find everywhere?  Well look no further - we have the perfect wines to add to your cellar - and what a fun way to compare east vs. west mountain vineyards!  Included are 2 mini-verticals along with a tasting for 4 at our new tasting room located on Atlas Peak Road in Napa (see below for details and options).

We're one of Napa Valley's hidden gems - since 2004, we have produced wines from some of the valley's most cherished and iconic vineyards. Our production is small and most of our wines are sold via our tasting room or wine club - so you won't find our wines everywhere. Named by Wine Spectator Magazine "as one of twenty new cabernet producers to watch" during our initial release, our wines have continued to gain the attention of consumers and industry professionals. What started with one wine in 2004 has now grown to 11 different offerings - including rose', sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, merlot, malbec, multiple cabernet sauvignon offerings, petite sirah and syrah. 

East:  Stagecoach Vineyard® (Napa Valley)

Located about 8 miles up from the valley floor. Our fruit comes from a premium vineyard block facing southwest. The area is a bit warmer than other parts of the vineyard and a sweet spot for Cabernet Sauvignon with it's marine influence, and volcanic red rock soils.  Our cabs from this vineyard block express black cherry, red and black currants, and hints of Asian spice. You'll receive a mini-vertical (3 bottles - 1 bottle of each vintage) of our:

  • 2016: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 93+ points
  • 2017: James Suckling 94 points - "Top 10 List of 2017 Napa Cabs Under $100"
  • 2018: James Suckling 93 points (not yet released)

Yates Family Vineyard (Mt. Veeder)

Located at the end of Redwood Road in the western Mayacamus Mountains - this is a small vineyard (only about 35 planted acres) with elevation over 1,100 feet. Our cabs from this vineyard are full bodied and express blue and black fruit along with hints of spice and earth. More old world in style than our other cabernet wines - this wine is delicious with veal or lamb. You'll receive a mini-vertical (3 bottles - 1 bottle of each vintage) of our:

  • ​2016 James Suckling 94 points
  • 2017: James Suckling 93 points
  • 2018: James Suckling 93 points; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 points

Tasting for 4* (a $260 value)

Included is a private Portfolio Tasting for 4 at our new tasting room located at 1021 Atlas Peak Road - in the rolling eastern hillsides of the valley.  Our Portfolio tasting offers an in-depth tasting of our complete portfolio including a side-by-side pairing of our current release cabernet sauvignon wines from mountain and valley floor vineyards. A selection of cheeses is included with your tasting.    

*Tasting for 4 valid through 12/31/22. We will arrange a private virtual tasting session for those who prefer not to travel.
