Maroon
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
, Napa Valley
Coombsville, Estate Reserve

New Release

Violet black in color with aromas of rich fruity dark berries, honeycomb, vanilla, and hints of forest floor join together with bold flavors of black cherry and spiced nut.  Aged new French oak barrels for 30 months added complexity yet a balanced oak profile, layered palette, leaving you with its enjoyable persistent finish.  A light decanting for a couple hours will allow the wine fully open up... or cellar for 5-7 years for greater complexity.

Lush and concentrated Cabernet for pleasure now and many years hence. Pair with Braised Beef Short Ribs, Grilled Steak, Brisket, Meatballs and more...

Though rare, you may occasionally see an Estate Reserve Napa Cabernet for under $50,  but finding a single vineyard Napa Cab for this price is essentially zero.  Don’t let this one pass you by!

Napa Valley, Coombsville District
Coombsville District is one of the premier sub-regions within the Napa Valley, with its proximity to the Bay leading to a cooler growing season and more elegant wines.  While Cabernet does well in the warmer regions to the north in Napa, the Coombsville District presents a more elegant, refined Cabernet, with stunning depth.

Vintage
It is a little cooler in the southern end of Napa Valley, and we benefit from this by being able to ripen the grapes slowly and evenly. The 2017 vintage has produced wines that are opulent and velvety, with great layers and depth.

Winemaking
Grapes were hand-picked, destemmed and hand-sorted, followed by fermentation in tank to dryness. Pumpovers were performed twice a day to extract tannins and flavors, then the juice was drained and gently pressed. The wine was aged for 30 months in oak barrels, 1/3 new French oak and 2/3 neutral barrels.
