Jeb Dunnuck
Aging in new barrels, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach is cut from the same cloth, and offers a touch more exuberance and depth than the 2015. Blueberries, scorched earth, chocolate, violets and loads of minerality all give way to a rich, concentrated 2016 that has fabulous purity and precision, building tannin and a big finish. I'll most likely taste this again from barrel next year, but it's unquestionably going to be a great wine.
Range: 97-99

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.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

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.

Macauley, California
Macauley Winery Image
The Macauley Vineyard label was originally established in St. Helena in the early 1980s by Ann Macauley Watson and for several years produced a very well received late harvest Sauvignon Blanc with help from renowned winemaker, Ric Forman.

In the late summer of 2000, Ann’s son Mac went to work for Rudd Estate in Oakville. After several months of winery work and education he was inspired to revive the family label, and, working with winemaker and childhood friend Kirk Venge, crushed his first grapes in October 2001.

Mac and Kirk have one goal: to source the highest quality fruit in Napa Valley and make wines of extraordinary depth and personality. The grapes they choose showcase the terroir of the vineyards and create a remarkable wine-drinking experience.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
