Good Value

The Coho Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 starts with a Bordeaux-ish earthy-minty spice and warm berry fruitiness. In the mouth the Cab is medium/full bodied, carefully extracted and layered. Deep red berry and pomegranate fruits, crushed bay and mint leaves, sassafras and toasty vanilla bean (50% new French oak aged). Exceptionally delicious at its relatively young age, and also built to age and improve up to, probably beyond, 2030. In a difficult vintage for Napa Cabernet, this is one of the best I’ve had to date.

The Coho mantra is on the back label: “Swim against the flow. Lightning glimpsed through water; Sustain the species!”
4% Petit Verdot, 1 % Merlot. 3 day cold soak followed by 7 day fermentation.
