Product Overview

The 2016 Coho Michael Black Vineyard Merlot from the prestigious Coombsville region of Napa Valley is made with a unique clone of Merlot that produces small berries and clusters that limit the Merlot grapes from over-plumping while contributing significant structure in the fruit. Plus, the cool climate of Coombsville promotes spicy aromatics and refined tannins. In the glass, aromas of blackberry preserve mix with notes of dark chocolate and white pepper, while the palate offers an elegant mélange of plum, pomegranate, and blackberry flavors that richly fills the palate. The persistent finish promises delightful enjoyment for the next fifteen plus years.

Appellation: Coombsville AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 21 months in French oak barrels, 45% new

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Well-structured and rich-tasting, with a lithe savoriness to the dried dark fruit and berry flavors. Minerally in the midpalate, with a toasty finish that offers cooking spice and dried green herb accents. Drink now through 2026. 397 cases made." -KM, 10/31/21
