Levendi Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 | 96 Points | Luscious
Winery | Levendi Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 delivers eep tobacco and a chocolate nose with hints of cassis and blackberry. A very big, layered palate – complex, with a mountain of tannin still slotting into place for future structural integrity. In addition, bittersweet melted chocolate and praline flavors reward the collector who will want to invest in this wine. Note this incredible Cabernet will continue to grow and integrate. Finally, mountain fruit like Stagecoach Vineyard is not for the faint of palate!
96 Pts The Tasting Panel-Napa Valley, California- Levendi Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015. “Juicy elements meld with teeth-coating tannins as dark chocolate and black beans intensify this wine’s depth.

Levendi Winery | Celebrate Life!
Our family, the Gianulias’, has a strong Greek tradition of private winemaking dating back for centuries. The Greek toast “Levendi” acknowledges a hard day’s labor and achievement. It celebrates the fields, the rain and the sun that nurture our special grapes. Essentially, it’s a toast “to celebrate life.” And it is the philosophy on which we craft our wine.
Stagecoach Vineyard Napa Valley | High Elevation
So the prestigious Stagecoach rests on the southern face of Pritchard Hill adjoining Eastern Oakville from an elevation climbing to over 1700′. While it boasts a collection of the best selections and clones of Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Cool fog rolls off the hills each morning during the summer. And the sun shines on the vines for most of each day. This combination of cool nights and long warm days allows for great complexity.
