The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Kobalt comes from two sites in Coombsville and is 100%Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 23 months in French oak. It’s a concentrated, full-bodied 2014 that shows the supple, sexy, seamless and forward style of this vintage nicely. With lots of blueberries, cedar, violets and lead pencil aromatics, a perfumed, lifted style and fine tannin, it’s a beautiful 2014 that can be drunk anytime over the coming 15-20 years.

Kobalt's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Mark Herold wine built on super-ripe, inky fruit, soft contours and notable concentration. Inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, lavender, bittersweet chocolate and sweet French oak are front and center in this full-throttle, unapologetically rich Cabernet Sauvignon.

Coming from the Stagecoach Vineyard and some other terroirs in Coombsville, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is made by Mark Herold, and his style obviously leans toward super-extraction. A dense purple color, with notes of roasted coffee, chocolate, blackcurrant, blackberry, new saddle leather and spice, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied, opulent and best drunk over the next 15-20 years.

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.
