2012 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon
Joseph Carr’s Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Napa’s newest AVA. Located in southeast Napa, Coombsville is bordered by the Napa River on the west and the Vaca Range on the east. Coombsville yields particularly elegant Cabernet Sauvignon owing to its unique soil and microclimate. The soil is dominated by volcanic deposits from the Vaca Range. Its proximity to the San Francisco Bay creates a temperate climate that elongates grapes’ hang time, allowing them to reach peak flavor maturation without sacrificing acidity.
