Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Port 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Fortified Cabernet Sauvignon (Port) was bottled in the fall of 2007 and will be released later this year. Spicy, mocha, exotic berries and cherries dominate the bouquet with essences of violet. The color is opaque/black purple. On the palate are endless layers of chocolaty ripe black cherry, crème de cassis, sweet licorice, black pepper followed by structured, rich tannins and hints of spicy French oak. This wine is made in the same “Old Word Tradition” as that country to the left of Spain.

My first opportunity to try a "wine" came while working in Yosemite National Park in 1974. I was offered a glass of 1970 Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet. Later that summer I made my first trip to the Napa Valley and, in my immediate love for it, decided that the place would someday be my home. After working at one of the oldest wine shops in San Francisco, I returned to the Napa Valley and took a job working for a small, family owned winery. My duties encompassed everything from pouring wine in the tasting room to topping wine barrels and bottling. Three years later upon an invitation to work a crush in France, I left my job and went to Bordeaux. When harvest was over that year I toured the French wine country, meeting winemakers who, in light of my juice-stained hands, treated me as one on them. With this special recognition, I was able to learn much more about grapes and wine than in three years working in the tasting room and winery. In particular, I learned about the importance of "terroir". Read less
