Napa Valley is the crown jewel of California winemaking and a true titan of Cabernet Sauvignon. With an ideal climate and rich soils, the lush valley offers near-perfect growing conditions and is indisputably one of the best places for Cabernet Sauvignon. The tiny region offers a rich selection of iconic and trophy wines that are highly sought after by collectors and consumers.
Coombsville, a sub AVA (American Viticultural Area) of the Napa Valley, received its designation in 2011 and is regarded as the future of Napa Cabernet. It is distinguished from other AVAs by its slightly cooler climate and its mix of soils which include mineral-rich volcanic ash and well-draining river rock. The cooler conditions slow ripening, allowing the grapes more hang time and letting flavors develop. Coombsville Cab also produces smaller berries, giving a greater flavor concentration and producing extremely smooth, rich, and polished tannins. Coombsville wines are noted for their typically softer but still significant tannin, which provides excellent structure and mouthfeel, along with underlying layers of earth and mineral flavors.
Big and bold with loads of dark fruit flavors, this is best matched with equally big, rich flavors, or foods high in fat and umami flavors. Try marinated ribeye steak, Angus burger, mushroom pizza, braised beef short ribs, or lamb. For charcuterie, feature cheeses like gouda, aged cheddar, or gorgonzola.
