...ripe currants, tobacco, spiced plums, and chocolate aromas and flavors...terrific ripeness, medium to full body, and notable freshness... It's a beautiful wine.

92The Wine Advocate

...notions of prunes, crème de cassis, raisin cake and Chinese five spice with hints of rose hip tea and dusty soil plus a waft of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a chewy frame and plenty of ripe, plum preserves and spice cake flavors with a distinctive minerality to the finish.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Coombsville

Coombsville AVA is one of Napa Valley’s newer appellations, having received its official designation only in 2011. Tucked just to the northeast of Los Carneros and a few minutes’ drive east of downtown Napa, the Coombsville appellation is relatively large at a total of 11,000 acres. The elevation varies from 100 to 1,000 feet, and the climate is moderated by marine breezes from the San Pablo Bay. The main grape varieties here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
