2013 Coble Ranch
Tasting Notes: The 2013 Coble Ranch blend is the perfect expression of our vineyard and the creative expression of our winemaker, Nicole Salengo. A barrel selection of the best reds from the 2013 vintage has lush aromas of black cherry, plum and raspberry. Upfront, flavors of cherry, vanilla and cacao dominate, while soft and velvety tannins round out the finish. This wine boasts a complexity that will keep any oenophile intrigued. Incredibly food friendly, this wine can pair with lighter fare such as charcuterie but can also match the weight of a steak. Cheers!
Winemakers Notes: When I started at Berryessa Gap in 2012, I began work on a signature blend that would be both an homage to our vineyard as well as to the winery’s heritage. After many many months and trials, the Coble Ranch blend was born. The 2013 vintage features a touch bigger body and more oak which bolster the wine without overwhelming the delicate flavors of our Malbec and Zinfandel. I hope you enjoy!
