Our offering of pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville represents our best expression of the historic, however newly ascendant, appellation in the southeast corner of the Napa Valley. We have been working with vineyards in this area for more than fifteen years and it is home to our winery. Its gravelly, volcanic soils and proximity to San Pablo Bay combine to lend the wines an old-world quality, delivered at an impressive level of concentration and depth. Our latest release, from the 2018 vintage, shows the inherent potential of the appellation.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
A truly classic growing season, the vintage seemed to amplify the defining aromas and flavors of Coombsville: pulsing acidity and freshness, an inky dark hue with vivid savory, floral, and fruit notes, including sage, anise, graphite, dark chocolate and boysenberry. Generous and inviting, it possesses a depth and structure that will help it age for decades in the bottle.
Ratings & Reviews:
97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"This 100% Cabernet comes from the southern, cooler end of the valley and was brought up in a mix of new and used French oak. Its dense purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of cassis, candied violets, toasted spices, tobacco, and lead pencil-like nuances. These carry to a full-bodied, concentrated 2018 that offers flawless balance, building, ripe, seamless tannins, and a great finish. Very much in the more elegant, streamlined style of the vintage, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and evolve for 20-30 years or more."

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville, shows why Coombsville is so magical. Deep and inky, but with striking gorgeous freshness, the Coombsville Cabernet is dazzling. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, sweet spice and licorice infuse the 2018 with fabulous depth as well as complexity. Even with all of its natural exuberance, the 2018 remains light on its feet. The 2018 has really blossomed over the last year, as I thought it would. This is a fabulous showing."
