A blockbuster new Napa Valley red blend from one of our favorite small producers. Get the new vintage before the ratings come out! Coho Winery is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. The Coho 2013 Headwaters Red Napa Valley (Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot and Petite Verdot blended in) shows off a dense purple color plus a sweet perfume of espresso, white chocolate, black cherries, and figs. With tremendous opulence, density, and a long,lush finish, it will provide plenty of pleasure anytime over the next decade. 93 Points James Suckling: "Aromas of licorice and tar with black currants. Full body, round and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Gorgeous wine. Drink or hold." previous vintage 95 Points Wine Spectator: "Firm, rich and vibrant, this is intense, focused, concentrated and persistent, with a taut band of dried currant, mineral, plum and spice, gaining depth and complexity while maintaining a presence of balance and finesse. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018."
First tasting of the 2013. Doesn’t disappoint. Very well rounded blend.
