2016 Coquerel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
"You really can't find any great wines under $100 per bottle" is a huge disagreement that you and I can have all day, every day. It simply isn't true. This 2016 Coquerel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect example of what I'm talking about today. This wine is wonderfully delicious and won't kill your bank account. And with only 322 cases produced, this wine surely won't be available much longer. In fact, the magnum is sold out, so you have been warned!
This wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (about 82%) with a smart blend of Malbec remaining. This gorgeous color reminds me of black raspberry pie in a glass. It's deep and the aromas are soul-filling and mouth-watering. You can really appreciate the ripe black and red fruits, hint of cedar and dried spices and a bit of vanilla-y graphite. In the mouth is a powerfully fruit-forward wine that introduces micro tannins with every sip, creating a sleek and persistent finish. You can certainly pop this one open now or cellar this for several years. This wine is solid and very delightful.
