A blend of three cool climate vineyards from Napa's southern sector Coombsville Stags Leap and Oak Knoll the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (includes 3% Petit Verdot) exhibits plenty of spicy oak but it is dominated by sweet blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with notions of charcoal acacia flowers and pain grille. This full-bodied exotic flamboyant Cabernet possesses wonderful color richness and glycerin. Drink this voluptuous 2004 over the next 10-15 years. Previously recommended: 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (91).Tel. (707) 738-8742; Fax (707) 258-1416

Dense sweet and full; broadens out impressively toward the back half and saturates the palate with dark fruit flavors. Relies as much on its firm spine of acidity as on its very fine tannins for structure.

Label

Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is full-bodied and concentrated with plush tannins.

The winery has used the same vineyards in Coombsville since 2001, with the addition of 15% Stagecoach fruit in the 2013 & 2014 vintages. These vineyard locations are warm and cool down every night, preserving the natural acidity and tannic structure. The must is cold soaked for 48-72 hours and then fermented. Once dry, the Cabernet is aged in 100% new French oak for 22-27 months. All Kobalt wines are unfiltered to preserve the natural intensity of the fruit flavors.

Winery

Kobalt

Kobalt Wines was founded by Kevin Carriker in 1998. With the help of his friend, former-Merus winemaker Mark Herold, he purchased a small vineyard in Coombsville. After a couple of years, again with Mark’s help, Kevin made his first Cabernet Sauvignon.
