A beautiful new Pinot Noir from Coho, one of our favorite small producers.
Coho Winery is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. This wine comes three distinct Dijon clones of Pinot Noir on Stanly Ranch in Carneros.These blocks are all located on "Home Hill", so called because it overlooks Judge Stanly's homestead site from the late 1800's. The gravelly slopes allow the vines to mature the grapes to perfection. Ripe aromas fill your glass, and enticing black cherry, violet and cocoa scents mingle with a vanilla - infused bouquet. Rich and mouth - filling, it's fine texture and moderate tannins reveal black cherry fruit flavors and a very elegant finish

A beautiful new Napa Valley Merlot from one of our favorite small producers. Get this small-production gem while our allocations lasts.
Coho Winery is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. The Coho 2010 Michael Black Vineyard Merlot offers up rich cassis, dusty berry and black cherry aromas, with warm and exotic floral scents of dried rose petals and hibiscus flowers. Enticing cedary-spice notes with vanillin and hints of black olive lead to a very concentrated, black cherry and berry flavor in the mouth. The supple tannins and complex layers of richness unwind slowly as ripe, black fruit flavors burst across the palate. The textural impression is very sensual and succulent, and the intensity builds in a powerful finish of fruit purity and mineral nuances. Highly Recommended.
A great small-production Cabernet discovery from Napa Valley's Diamond Mountain. Hurry - only a few hundred cases produced.
"In 2004 we met Michael and Susan Klopka who had lovingly planted a small Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard near the top of Diamond Mountain in the northern end of Napa Valley. One look at the porous, red volcanic soils, and the exposure to the cool afternoon breezes coming all the way from Lake Sonoma, we were convinced that this had the makings of an outstanding Cabernet vineyard. The northwest hillside exposure provides plenty of hang-time, and the long, sunny days slowly ripen the grapes to perfection."
