Premier Napa Valley 2016 Coombsville Lots: Sodaro Estate—Lot 63

LOT 63

The Sodaro Estate Premier Napa lot consists of a mere five cases of Cabernet Sauvignon produced from grapes grown in the estate vineyard with sustainable viticultural practices. The wine is unfilted and is beging aged in 100% new French oak barrels.

The Sodaro lot was produced by the winemaking team of Dennis and Mary Britt Malbec who together craft the small amounts of wine produced at this family owned winery founded by Don and Dee Dee Sodaro. Their nine-acre Coombsville vineyard includes various blocks at different aspects and exposures including both hilly as well as flat sites. The estate includes a dual-chamber winery cave built into the hillside above the vineyards where small tank sizes facilitate winemaking in very small lots to preserve a broad palette of individual flavors for consideration during blending.
