RATINGS

93+ The Wine Advocate

...notions of plum preserves, baked blackberries, kirsch and cassis with hints of bay leaves, red roses and cloves plus a touch of tapenade. Medium-bodied, the palate has fantastic energy and freshness with loads of mineral sparks and a long savory finish.

92Vinous / IWC

...mix of rich, dark red-toned fruit and bright floral notes that add both energy and freshness...deep, but also light on its feet for such a powerful wine.

91Wine Spectator

Juicy and engaging, featuring a mix of raspberry, red currant and red licorice notes bouncing along, with light floral and anise accents. Fresh acidity is buried here too, extending 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.
