Coquerel Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga Napa Valley 2018
Coquerel was started in 2005 with the guidance of Bordelaises Christine Barbe, and her expertise and experience has helped to breathe fresh air into Napa’s typical highly extracted over-ripe cabs. This wine relies on nuance and finesse; the type of wine you can open any day of the week, not just with steak. Light and bright with violets, herbs, red plums, mulberries, cherries, and earthy cedar box. Delicate tannins and subtle hints of vanilla tie everything together.
