Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 92 | September 15, 2023 | Wine Spectator

Tightly focused, with a textbook Coombsville Cabernet profile of black currant fruit, singed tobacco and cast iron notes backed by tannic grip. Shows solid length and drive for the vintage, too. Best from 2024 through 2035.

Score: 94 | October 1, 2023 | Wine Enthusiast

This ripe, inviting and full-bodied wine blends red and black cherries, cocoa and cinnamon on a full body wrapped in velvety tannins. Enjoyable now for its richness and warm, mouthfilling texture, it can also age. Best 2026–2036

Score: 92 | June 30, 2021 | Wine Spectator

A light Sanguine hint leads off, quickly followed by ripe and dense raspberry and blackberry compote flavors. Subtle alder and sweet bay leaf notes dart in, ending with a red tea accent on the finish. Drink now through 2029. -JM

Tangy currant and cranberry is complemented by earthy compost, cedar and crushed rock elements: a nice showcase for the appellation. Made in a thick, substantive style, it offers robust ripeness and hearty oak. -Virginie Boone

From the cooler reaches of the Napa Valley, this Coombsville wine is herbal and leathery, with a taste of bittersweet chocolate at its core. Integrated oak plays a background role behind baked plum and intense, ripe fruit, finishing in tobacco.  — V.B.
