DescriptionCoup de Foudre Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2005
WINE SPECTATORSavory wild berry, currant and black cherry is ripe and fleshy, with nice touches of cedary oak, dill and black licorice that gain complexity and nuance, offering depth without weight. Drink now through 2014. 400 cases made.
VINOUS(14% alcohol): Bright medium ruby. High-toned dark berry aromas are joined by a weedy nuance and a whiff of Band-Aid. Quite sweet and plush on the palate, conveying a distinctly high-toned quality to the flavors of cassis, black cherry, licorice and herbs. Finishes with slightly dusty, chewy tannins and a touch of dryness. A rather unrefined Cabernet with its chocolate and herbal elements a bit disjointed. I don't see this improving further.
