2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Coquelicot
Santa Ynez Valley
Tones of Strawberry, blue fruits, elderberry & plum.
Cabernet Sauvignon thrives at Coquelicot. The low valley planting is well suited to Bordeaux varieties as it stays cold through the morning but gets very hot in the afternoon. It is difficult to ripen the green bell pepper flavor out of Cabernet in cold growing areas; but too hot and the fruit looses its flavor completely. This is a perfect site for no sulfites wine as it retains plenty of natural vibrancy and structure with pronounced aromas of farmer’s market blackberry stand, and baking spices. Coquelicot has been farmed organically for many years and has shown no residual pesticides in the wines produced from its fruit.
On the Palate, it is full bodied, smooth with fine tannins, and aromas of elderberry.
No Added Sulfites
