Region: Coombsville, Napa Valley, CA
Coombsville, the youngest established sub-appellation within the Napa Valley, was a well-kept secret of famed Napa Cabernet Sauvignon producers for quite some time. This quiet area, tucked against the foothills of the Vacas Range in the southeastern corner of the region, is now recognized as one of the Napa Valley’s sweet spots.
The 2014 vintage was a highly rated, superb vintage, known for a big crop of charming, dense, cellar-worthy wines. When you also factor in the premium Coombsville fruit and a highly passionate and talented winemaker, you get something very special in the bottle. A deep opaque in color, with an intense, dark garnet core. This wine shows off a depth of aromas, with dried savory herbs, blackberry and dark cherry playing a prominent role early on. As the wine opens, bakeshop spices and vanilla complement nicely, and hints of black licorice and subtle eucalyptus show through. Dark fruit and spice notes follow through on the palate. The tannins are present, yet soft, and the vibrant acidity provides wonderful balance on the wine’s medium-full finish. Decant for 30-45 minutes and enjoy every decadent sip!
