2010 Kobalt - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
"Winemaker Mark Herold has achieved cult status for crafting graceful wines throughout the Napa Valley. Kobalt Wines consists of Mark and his partner, Kevin Carriker, and the two only produce 20 barrels of wine per year! They were delighted with the 2010 vintage for its finesse and complexity. Full of violet, black fruit, spice and bittersweet chocolate notes, Kobalt delivers depth that keeps on going. The Wine Advocate awarded it 95 points, and it's a steal at this discounted price. Only two cases left!" -SFWTC Staff
Wine Spectator: 90 Points
Pure and silky at the start, firming with dried herb and cedar notes. This offers rich plum and berry, with chewy, mineral-laced tannins imparting a nice push of flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 465 cases made.
Wine Advocate: 95 Points
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is super-impressive. A firm, full-bodied wine, it showcases the best of Coombsville in its powerful fruit and equally imposing yet well-balanced tannins. Black plums, black currants, mint, graphite, pencil shavings, violets and spices all flow through to the incisive, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Mark Herold makes these delicious wines for Kobalt. All of the Mark Herold projects have their own distinctive signatures, and that is very much the case here as well." -Wine Advocate
