3-Bottle Stagecoach Vertical
“In the earliest stages of Somnium, when we planted the estate vineyard on Howell Mountain, I decided to produce the first Somnium label wine, with grapes from the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak. As we cultivated my vineyard, winemaker Aaron Pott was able to keep a close eye on my Stagecoach row, which was right next to his. It was a great way to work together to develop our identity and ultimately create the first estate wine from the Somnium Vineyard in 2013.” -Danica Patrick
This special vertical includes the first wines produced under the Somnium label, with only two barrels of each vintage. All 3 wines are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% French New Oak.
2010: "Cherry, plum, toasted walnut, vanilla, nutmeg, cola, cedar, and tobacco fill the nose. Soft core of tannin with a rich midpalate of chocolate, cherry, toffee, plum, and almonds, offer beautiful balance and acidity. Superior tannin quality and length with a lovely cherry, cocoa, and toffee finish." Drink now until 2023 -Aaron Pott, Winemaker
2011: "Forest floor, black Perigord truffle, porcini mushroom, black currant, blood orange, pomegranate, dried black licorice, cocoa, cedar, cigar box, and nutmeg on the nose. Flavors of pomegranate, plum, cherry, red currant, vanilla, and dark chocolate in a plush core of tannin. Excellent structure and lift with a silky soft finish of cocoa, plum and citrus." Drink now until 2025 -Aaron Pott, Winemaker
