92 - 94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach offers up a cassis, earth, herbs, violets and cedar nose with hints of Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins, lively acid and vibrant fruit, it finishes long and earthy.
94pts Wine Spectator
Big and broad-shouldered, this leaves a wide wake as it cruises through, with a serious core of cassis, plum reduction and blackberry preserve flavors, all carried by lush loam and warmed licorice notes. Extra anise and graphite accents add range and cut on the seriously long finish. Best from 2021 through 2032. 225 cases made.
