2013 Las Bonitas 'The Giant' Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville
From the Carpignano vineyard in the newly recognized Coombsville AVA in southeast Napa, this is the first time that we have created such a limited production wine…one that we consider the 'Daredevil' Cabernet Sauvignon on steroids! Given the painstaking nature of this process, production will generally be very limited.
Tasting Notes from Proprietor Garret Murphy: “...deep purple hue in color, bing cherries and black current packed with classic aromas of earthiness, porcini mushroom and bacon. Coupled with the scent of vanilla crème brulée and beautifully integrated tannins gives this wine a velvety mouth-feel with a complex and lingering finish. Well-structured, the finish persists revealing lightly toasted oak, spice and natural acidity.”
