A blockbuster new Napa Valley red blend from one of our favorite small producers. Get the new vintage before the ratings come out!
Coho Winery is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. The Coho 2018 Headwaters Red Napa Valley (Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot and Petite Verdot blended in) shows off a dense purple color plus a sweet perfume of espresso, white chocolate, black cherries, and figs. With tremendous opulence, density, and a long,lush finish, it will provide plenty of pleasure anytime over the next decade.
94 Points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberry and chocolate with spice and currant character. Hints of bark too. Full body, round and juicy tannins. Shows some tension for the vintage. A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 19% Petit Verdot. Drink or hold."
92 Points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic, with warm espresso, sage and worn leather notes leading off, backed by a core of slightly chewy mulled currant, fig and huckleberry flavors. Keeps an old-school bent through the finish, revealing a flash of cast iron. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2028."
