Parker loved this Stagecoach Cabernet, calling it "Inky purple in color, with crème de cassis, blackberry, licorice and floral notes, this is another pedal-to-the-metal, super-rich Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is also elegant and not the least bit cloying or rustic. This is another sensational effort that seems to be suggesting that the Krupp brothers are pushing the envelope to higher and higher quality. This wine certainly showcases this wonderfully charming and seductive vintage brilliantly. Drink it over the next 20 years."

Wine Advocate

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon M5 (another Stagecoach Vineyard wine) carries the motto from co-proprietors Jan and Bart Krupp: “Born from stone, cloaked in elegance,” and that seems to be an apt descriptor. Inky purple in color, with crème de cassis, blackberry, licorice and floral notes, this is another pedal-to-the-metal, super-rich Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is also elegant and not the least bit cloying or rustic. This is another sensational effort that seems to be suggesting that the Krupp brothers are pushing the envelope to higher and higher quality. This wine certainly showcases this wonderfully charming and seductive vintage brilliantly. Drink it over the next 20 years.
