World's End Cabernet Sauvignon Stir It Up Stagecoach Vineyard Napa Valley 2014
Man…it is GOOD to be a local!! CABERNET! 94 points! Stagecoach Vineyard (grape source for Pahlmeyer, Caymus, and dozens more) -- an inky dark, plush beast!! Wow! Only a tiny bit to go around! Happy happy Thursday indeed!
Whew!! So, many of the savviest of you all will know WORLD'S END --- the Napa Valley brainchild of Jonathan Maltus. Jonathan Maltus is much better known for making wine in St. Emilion (he has made oodles of highly-acclaimed and huge-scoring wines, including several 100-pointers) at LE DOME and Chateau Tessier, among others. This is MODERN-styled, rich, hedonistic Cab from a coveted vineyard!
You know, some wines are Ford Escorts, some wines are Ferraris, and SOME are like, let's say, an Audi TTS, or the Volvo R Series wagons or Range Rovers....elegantly presented, subtle-looking but absolutely ROARING, heart-pounding and powerful under the hood. That's this wine. An incredible buy at our exhilarating price!! The 94-point review pretty much says it all -- “ hugely robust in concentration and power” -- berries, black cherry, licorice, mocha, tons of silky French oak and persistent spice. Not for the shy! Only a bit to sell!
World’s End Stir It Up, is inspired by a Bob Marley song.

About The Producer
World’s end is the brainchild of Jonathan Maltus who is known for making wine in St. Emilion from a variety of different
terroirs. Maltus also makes wine in Australia. Chateau Le Dome and Chateau
Teyssier are his 2 best known, Right Bank wines.
Jonathan Maltus wanted to buy his own vineyard. He came close to purchasing property on Spring Mountain. But, the initial deal fell apart. So, he tracked down some very good, sources for grapes chiefly from Andy Beckstoffer.
The main sources for grapes used to produce World’s End
wines comes from To Kalon Missouri Hooper, Vineyard D Missouri Hooper, Vineyard
B Circle S, Coombsville Sugarloaf Mountain Beckstoffer Vineyard, Georges III
Carneros Lake Vineyard, Pritchard Hill and the Stagecoach vineyard. Several of
the wines are Left Bank Bordeaux styled blends with various amounts of Cabernet
