Coombsville, Napa Valley
Maroon Wines 2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley, CA
Enjoying a glass of this wine is like the pleasurable pursuit of solving a mystery. Each sniff or sip gives a new layer, angle or dimension. At first, baked black and red fruit beguilingly draw you in, then soft vanilla and clove enter the scene. At the next sip you encounter black tea, cola and somewhere in the background is a streak of minerality sneaking across the palate. Just when you think you have it figured out, hints of sweet herbs, damp earth and leather trickle in, leaving you to start from scratch. This is a perfect wine to ponder and will benefit from a few more years in the bottle to increase its already complex and layered flavor profile.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

About the Vineyard:
Grown in Maroon Wines’ Hagen Road Estate, Paul's Cabernet Sauvignon vines enjoy slightly cooler temperatures and longer hang time than in other areas of Napa Valley, giving the grapes time to fully ripen before harvest.
