Wine Review: This opaque and deep purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black cherry and dark chocolate bouquet with a hint of blueberry and charcoal. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with mild acidity. The mouthfeel is round and juicy. The flavor profile is blueberry and cherry blend with notes of menthol, black plum, and oak. We also detected a hint of graphite mixed in. The finish is dry, and its mild tannins drift nicely. The Panel would pair this Cab with a filet mignon or with prime rib and Yorkshire pudding. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: We are proud to carry the Coombsville appellation on our label after becoming a pillar of our Cabernet sourcing in Napa Valley. The inaugural release presents a deep ruby with violet highlights and scents of wild blueberry, dried lavender, and mocha. A beautiful entry envelops the palate and features generous layers of red currant, black fig, and subtle notes of fresh sage and leather. Fresh acidity wraps around fine-grained tannins providing tension towards the finish, revealing a crushed rock minerality that confers the region's inherent rocky soils.
