2014 Coup de Foudre Cuvee 37.2 750ml
Tasting Notes: The 2014 Coup de Foudre Cuvee offers aromatic notes of fresh blackberry and raspberry, flowed by roasted walnuts and vanilla bean. The body has a focused intensity with polished tannins and balanced structure. Produced from a Calistoga Estate Vineyard, this wine was barrel-aged for 18 months with 70% new oak.
Vintner Notes: For the past 20 years, proprietor John Schwartz and winemaker Kent Jarmon, have had the great honor to work with wine, savor it, and witness its impact on consumers as they navigate the sheer pleasure it brings. "Coup de Foudre" or "Lightening Strike" is a French expression which refers to an unforeseen event, such as love at first sight. While this is how John explains the experience of meeting his wife, he has now embarked on the path to create a unique wine with elements worthy of a "Coup de Foudre." His wines are meant to be shared with the special people in our lives — and be part central part of the gatherings and stories we experience through the years.
