Description 

Skylark Stagecoach Vineyard Syrah
There is so much to say about this wine, but where to start? Perhaps in the beginning, when 12 years ago as wine buyers we tasted Joshua and Jan Krupps stellar Cabernets and Syrahs from Jans now historic property, Stagecoach Vineyard. Or perhaps the real genesis of this wine was Josh Krupps friendship, guidance and assistance in our salad days at Skylark. When it appeared that a licensing problem would prevent our fledgling company from ever making it from barrel to bottle, Josh stepped in and saved us. There was no personal incentive for Josh, he was just helping two brothers-in-arms who needed it. We lost Josh during harvest 2009, something we still feel to this day. The 2009 Stagecoach Syrah is our homage to Joshua Krupp. The Syrah was grown on his fathers spectacular vineyard high above the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley. We chose our six favorite barrels, then racked into four new and two seasoned Francois Freres. After 32 months in the cave, we bottled last Spring unfined and unfiltered. Its in your memory Josh, we hope we have honored you well.

Bottle Size: .750
