In French, a Coup de Foudre is the lightning bolt that you feel when you first stare into the eyes of the person who will become the love of your life. This Cab will write you a love letter anytime you pop the cork. An ode to dark plum, sensual cassis, and soft supple tannins all yearning for your ready lips.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot coming from Calistoga. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant scents of baked plums, crème de cassis and wild blueberries plus hints of unsmoked cigars, dusty soil, garrigue and Chinese five spice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with a core of juicy black fruit and spicy accents, framed by ripe, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and layered.
