Winemaker Notes

The wine is dark red to black in color, with a soaring nose of black raspberry, cherry pie, incense, potpourri, bourbon vanilla, dark chocolate and exotic spice. The palate shows the warm vintage with lush fruit and an unctuous texture, while the mountain tannins provide the structure, allowing the fruit to shine on the long finish.

Wine Spectator
Ripe and polished, with an enticing core of plum, violet and melted licorice notes, seamlessly entwined and gliding through a well-integrated finish. Refined and lengthy. You can kick back with this now, or hold for a bit. Drink now through 2030.

From a site on Pritchard Hill, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach offers more blue fruits, crushed violets, espresso, and a touch of minerality to a go with a beautifully pure, full-bodied, concentrated style on the palate. It's another impressive wine from this estate, unfortunately there only two barrels made.

Relic Wine Cellars Relic Wine Cellars Winery Image

Relic was founded in Napa Valley in 2001 by husband and wife team Michael Hirby and Schatzi

Throckmorton, with a focus on historic winemaking techniques. Inspired by a love of Burgundy, they began making a small amount of Pinot Noir, and have since continued to mine history for old secrets in the making of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast as well as Rhone and Bordeaux varietals from the Napa Valley, where their hillside cave winery is located.

When highly natural, traditional methods such as indigenous yeast fermentation, whole-cluster

fermentation, extended lees ageing, minimal-intervention, etc. - are applied to California’s great terroirs, the resulting wines are world-class, complex, layered, and vibrantly aromatic. The diverse vineyard sources are tended with the utmost care, and are always grown to Relic’s specifications of yield, light exposure, irrigation, etc.

After gaining a degree in Philosophy from Colorado College, Michael worked for 2 years as a

sommelier. Before moving to Napa Valley., he spent an extended period tasting with winemakers in France, where he learned that some contemporary winemaking rules are meant to be broken, and his traditional approach became entrenched. Michael is currently the consulting winemaker for D.R. Stephens Estate, Husic Family Vineyards, Sarocka Estate, Wolf Family Vineyards, Flint Knoll, and MAZE, and was the consulting winemaker at Realm Cellars for 8 years.

Schatzi gained a degree in History from Northwestern before moving to Napa Valley in 1999 to work harvest. Her skills were soon recognized, and she has been busy ever since. Schatzi is the Business Manager for Behrens Family Winery, where she has been for 17 years.

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.
