2016 HEROLD COOMBSVILLE CABERNET
Winemaker's Tasting Notes: A hedonistically, opulent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville. Juicy ripe blackberries, black currants, crushed granite and honeyed black raspberries sing from the glass. Notes of black cardamom, freshly picked violets, graphite and chaparral complete the aromatic landscape of this wine. Savory, balanced and amazingly concentrated; this wine possesses explosive flavors of black and purple fruits pinned together with incredible minerality. Enjoy over the next 20 years or more.
The Coombsville AVA is located in the south of Napa Valley. The cooling Petaluma Gap winds sweep this AVA before reaching the upper valley; resulting in an extended ripening window that leads to highly pigmented, well developed grapes at harvest. The overall perfection of the 2016 vintage heightened the growing conditions in Coombsville gifting us an optimal year.
