Coup de Foudre Lightning Bolt only produced when we feel there are barrels worthy enough of presenting 100% Cabernet Sauvignon as a stand alone. Showing perfect varietal Cab Sauv character, this 2018 is rich with elements of Dark Chocolate, focused cassis, nuances of blue and black berry. 100% new French Oak, aged 20 months, fills in the crème brulet like mid-palate.
Situated at the top of Kings Ridge Road along the Sonoma Coast, the Pinot Noir Vineyard overlooks the Pacific ocean and basks in ample sun and fog at a 2000 feet elevation. The coastal fog keeps it cool in the mornings, but the ridge exposure allows for ample ripening. Strawberry preserve, anise, and spicy notes leap out of the glass. While fresh red fruit and hints of cherry are enveloped by subtle warm toasty oak nuances. The firm acidity and smooth tannin profile are perfectly balanced. Only 8 barrels.
