International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

(blended with 3% malbec; from Coombsville fruit): Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, smoke and flint, with lovely violet lift. Lush and mouthfilling without being at all over the top, with dark berry and chocolate flavors dominating. Finishes with broad, serious tannins. This is 14.8% alcohol with a moderate 3.65 pH. Winemaker Herold notes that this fruit always ripens but that cool evening breezes in Coombsville help to preserve acidity levels. This has turned out very well.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 192

A joint project between well-known winemaking consultant Mark Herold and Kevin Carriker, KobaltâÂ?Â?s big, blockbuster 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) boasts an inky/purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of camphor, charcoal, blueberries, black currants and toasty oak. Superb fruit, a sweet, full-bodied mouthfeel, a multilayered texture and a long finish with abundant but sweet, nicely integrated tannins, this classic Napa Cabernet should be consumed over the next 15-18 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Intense and rustic, with chewy tannins wrapped around core flavors of dried herb and currant, mineral, sage, tea, coffee grounds and cedar. This is full-bodied and complex, if still quite tight and leathery. In need of cellaring.
