Coho is a winery founded in 2002 by Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp in Napa, California. The name has several meanings: It represents the species of salmon native to the region, which were revered by local indigenous people of the Pacific basin from California to Japan, symbolizing wisdom and generosity. Coho habitat preservation is a charity important to Painter and Lipp, who also occasionally produce wines in partnership with these causes. Their commitment to them was inspired by the Celtic legend known as the “Salmon of Knowledge.” The high quality wines are produced throughout Napa and Sonoma, and are available only through limited allocation by mailing list or auction.  Read less

Lush, rich, smooth but with bold fruit, spice and oak. Drier than typical merlot. Rich start to finish despite the smoothness. A true "merlot" flavor in a very distinctive vintage. Bought some for drinking now (certainly ready) and some to see how it ages. Nose was a bit misleading (a bit sharper and spicier than actual taste).

The Coho 2009 Merlot Michael Black Vineyard is round, ripe, and structured. Aromas of blackberry compote, allspice, and mocha with just a hint of warm vanilla-rich oak.
