Description2008 Coup de Foudre Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA
Wine EnthusiastMade in an exceptionally ripe and strongly oaky way, this wine is rather heavy right now. The Cabernet was blended with some Syrah and Petit Verdot grown in a Calistoga vineyard. There's no questioning the richness, but it's so ripe that the blackberries veer into dark chocolate and prunes. See what it does over the next eight years.
VinousMedium red-ruby. Very ripe, slightly porty aromas of black plum, raspberry, mocha and chocolate. Rich, broad and smooth, with sweet currant, coffee and spice flavors leavened by slightly edgy acidity. Finishes with broad, horizontal, dusty tannins that are well supported by fruit. I'd give this wine a few years to harmonize its sweetness and acidity.
Wine AdvocateThe obsession with all things French continues with the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc). Revealing a similar dark ruby/purple color, it possesses lots of camphor, cassis, black cherry and licorice aromas as well as a full-bodied, impressively endowed, concentrated style with abundant texture. These are both serious wines to drink over the next 10-15 years.
