The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is a blend mostly from Meteor. A stunning wine, the 2019 possesses off the charts richness and tremendous depth that just builds with time in the glass. Inky dark fruit, plum, spice, licorice, menthol and crushed berries saturate the palate. The 2019 is one of the very finest wines I have ever tasted from Andy Erickson and Annie Favia. Don't miss it. 2025-2039
From Coombsville, one of the fresher areas of Napa, with fog influence, packed full of black fruits, more punchy and concentrated than the Cerro Sur from the same estate. Expect dark fruits and layers of liqourice and graphite, together with a restrained and slighly chalky feel to the tannins. Grippy, freshly-grated slate texture with a refreshing hit on the finish, hangs on in there delivering waves of flavour. This will age for a good decade or more. Harvest September 30 to October 7, 50% new oak. Natural yeasts, low intervention, no filtering or fining. Owners, viticulturalists and winemakers Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. Tasted twice.
