2011 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon
93 Pts, Editors' Choice: 2014 Wine Enthusiast; Gold Medal: 2013 Cabernet Shootout; Powerful, rich, intense.
Exotically spiced on the nose, with blackberry and blue fruit merging perfectly with molten licorice notes…intense crushed rock minerality with red currant, as well. An opulent palate of blackberry framboise and red currant is supported by broad-shouldered tannins with tremendous density, power, and finesse.
Style: Full, Bold
Flavors: Blackberry, Currant, Tannins
Meteor Vineyard is located in Coombsville District (the newest sub-appellation in Napa Valley), and owned by former AOL Chairman Barry Schuler and his wife Tracy. It’s a marvelous winery and vineyard, located up high on a rocky knoll in the heart of the Coombsville District, and a source for many luxury Cabernets from small, boutique producers. Planted in 1999, the stony, volcanic soils of this vineyard are known for producing densely colored, highly aromatic wines of incredible grace, elegance and intensity.
