About the Wine

You may have enjoyed a bottle or two of Brookman's Napa Cabernet that has gone bonkers on BHW, which is about half Stagecoach, and then rest from a vineyard off Silverado Trail in Napa. NOW, we present his insanely decadent and premium cellar-aged 100% rare Stagecoach bottling. To truly understand this magical place, it is best to taste it with age. And it's hitting all of its high notes now!

If you don't know the story, here is a refresher.

Let me introduce you to Gary Brookman, owner of Brookman Winery, and the legendary winemaker who played a crucial role in planting the Stagecoach vineyard, along with Dr. Jan Krupp.

“Dr. Jan Krupp is a former internist who sold his practice in 1998 to pursue his dream of creating a great vineyard to rival that of Chateau Margaux and Ridge Montebello.” And guess what? He did it.

He created the Stagecoach vineyard, a place that has become the go-to source of top-quality fruit for many prestigious wineries. Just think about it - Caymus, Paul Hobbs, Miner, Alpha Omega, Chappellet, Pride, Pahlmeyer, Palmaz... these are the big players, the crème de la crème, and they all source their fruit from the Stagecoach vineyard. And let me tell you, these wines don't come cheap. Most of them go for over $150 per bottle.

For those who don’t know Stagecoach Vineyard is simply iconic. Trust me when I say this place is like no other vineyard I've ever experienced; it's tucked away in a remote, off-the-grid location, giving it an air of mystery and adventure.

Now, here's the exciting part: Every single grape in this wine comes exclusively from the Stagecoach vineyard. If you've enjoyed the 2015 or 2016 Brookman Cab, here's the scoop: they didn't fully come from Stagecoach, yet they still made a mark.

Can you imagine what this one offers? Trust me, once you taste it, you'll understand the excitement around this famous vineyard. These are the type of wines that remind me why I love wine so much.

You see, Gary is more than just a talented winemaker - he's a true visionary. In fact, he was the largest buyer of the Stagecoach vineyard, when he spent over 25 years crafting the wines of Miner, and also during his trajectory in Grace Family. The following wineries have followed suit and work with Stagecoach fruit: Levendi, Chappellet, Darioush, Duckhorn, Montelena, Orin Swift, Pahlmeyer, and Quintessa. It is essential to note that most of these wines can fetch prices of up to $200+ per bottle.

And the Brookman Cab? Oh boy, does it deliver! It's a wine that embodies elegance, richness, and all the luxurious qualities you'd expect from a $150 bottle, and today, we have it at over 50% OFF!

Well, those few years have arrived, and the moment to indulge in this 12-year-old wine is NOW!!!

Aging: 22 Months 50% New French Oak

Tasting Notes: 100% Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2011 Brookman Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, born from a challenging growing year, exemplifies the resilience of both the vineyard and Gary. This vintage unfolds as a graceful narrative, drawing inspiration from the lineage of great Chateau Margaux wines.

The wine invites delicate aromas of red currants, black cherries, and a subtle undercurrent of cedar. This nuanced nose echoes the sophistication and restraint reminiscent of esteemed Bordeaux counterparts.

There is measured elegance here. Silky tannins cradle vibrant red fruit flavors, harmonizing with nuanced hints of tobacco and a touch of earthiness. In contrast to the robustness of previous years, this wine presents a more restrained and contemplative profile, akin to the refined style of Chateau Margaux. While not a mirror of its predecessors, the 2011 Brookman Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captivates with its finesse, inviting enthusiasts to appreciate the beauty born from adversity.
