2013
Coombsville

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

The 2013 release from Coombsville, Napa Valley’s newest AVA, is grown from vineyards that are tucked up against the foothills of the Vaca Range within the region’s bowl-shaped valley. The fog tends to burn off later in the morning and settle faster than the rest of the valley create cooler temperature that lead to late ripening fruit that is some of the last to arrive in the winery but is widely recognized for its excellent texture and flavors.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Deeply colored in the glass.

Aroma: 

Lively aromas of plum and dried strawberry.

Palate: 

Deeply colored in the glass, this exquisitely juicy and soft Cabernet offers deep flavors of English Breakfast Tea and a touch of licorice. This full bodied wine has a plush palate with a sweet note that is perfect as an all day long Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
