Handwritten Wines


Handwritten 2012 Coombsville Cabernet

Much like Stags Leap district, Coombsville faces west and greets the setting sun with warmth every afternoon. Its southerly position within the valley and the relative proximity to the bay bring cooler temperatures at night and during the day leading to an impressive range of daily temperatures. This allows for an incredible complexity and richness of fruit all the while maintaining a certain freshness on the pallet. This wine is at once rich and dense with a finish that melts into a velvety equilibrium. Enjoy now or watch this gorgeous wine age to perfection in the next three to five years.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

Only the Coombsville appellation could produce a wine with such diversity of aromas and flavors, and with such intensity as is displayed in the 2012 Handwritten Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon. Find macerated black cherries, cocoa powder, sarsaparilla and tobacco laced with rocky minerality on the nose. A first taste reveals bright red fruit delivered by lively acidity, a second offers roasted earth, pipe tobacco and structured tannins, all delivered by a full, rich body. Enjoy now followed by a firm decant or cellar for three to five years.
