.Discovering Coeur De Vignes’ Acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa winemaker Jeff Cole keeps the legacy alive with the Left Bank Bordeaux-inspired blend

Coeur De Vigne wines are mainly sold through wine merchants, so getting some shipped to your door is easy. Based in Rutherford, Napa, Coeur De Vigne is known for its extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2019 Cab ($102) is a great red wine to enhance any special occasion. Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and blended with 8% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this deep purple wine is brimming with dark fruit, considerable oak and complex layers of vanilla, cassis and plum. Aged in 87% new French oak, delicious flavors of dark chocolate and dried cherries with some plum and raspberry notes emerge in this divine Cab.

Grapes are grown on the Sullivan Estate, started by Jim Sullivan in 1972. Winemaker Jeff Cole takes pride in continuing the legacy of making this Left Bank Bordeaux-inspired blend “with a clear and powerful voice.”

The Tasting Panel Magazine awarded the “fresh and velvety” Cab 94 points. coerdevignenapa.com
