Tasting Notes

The 2015 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful expression of Cabernet coming from this relatively cooler appellation within the Napa Valley. The wine is full of ripe juicy blackberry, black cherry and plum, with hints of more savory characteristics like vanilla, clove, coffee, leather and spice from the well-integrated oak ageing. This Cabernet has amazing structure with a smooth, plush and velvety mouth filling texture backed up by incredible balance and depth. The wine is generous, concentrated and complex unfolding with layers of fine tannins and well-integrated oak notes that persist through the tremendously long bittersweet chocolate finish. This is a Cabernet lovers Cab that will age for many years to come.

Vineyard Notes

Winemaker Christophe Paubert has always admired the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from Coombsville for its concentration and fresh aromatics. Year after year the appellation yields some of the most concentrated and distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. This wine captures a pure expression of Napa’s southeastern corner and its unique elevation and cooler terroir. The majority of the blend comes from Garvey Vineyard, and long-standing relationships with some of the most highly regarded growers in Coombsville ensure this wine exemplifies the excellent structure, concentrated fresh flavors and significant tannins of this celebrated appellation.
