2012 Broken Axle "Stagecoach Vineyard"

Napa Valley

Tasting Notes

Dark violet, the aroma matches the color with asphalt, fresh blueberry, and gravel. This is our richest and silkiest wine to date. The intense southern exposure at 1500’ on Pritchard Hill smooths the tannins into a cacao-like texture. A wide mid-palette gains momentum through the finish. Nuance of white pepper minerality holds together the tight core of this wine suggesting age-ability like the other wines from this region.
