*2010 Coup de Foudre 37.2 Cuvée
Coup de Foudre 37.2 Cuvee, Napa Valley, USA 2010
Balances power and finesse, with aromas of currant and violet that open to rich yet densely packed blackberry, olive and loam flavors. The tight finish of tannins suggests a long life. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2015 through 2021. 350 cases made. (WS)
The CDF Cuvee delivers again on its promise to be ready to drink from the get go. The Merlot component making up half the blend has gorgeous firm acidity and copious aromatics. Cab Franc and Petit Verdot round out the jammy preserve elements and provide just enough tannin to carry the lengthy finish.
