    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Coup de Foudre comes across as way too extracted, oaky, lean, and tannic.

Coup de Foudre represents capturing the moment when something unforgettable occurs. It is a collaboration between Danielle Price, Director of Wine for Wynn Resorts, and John Schwartz, owner of Amuse Bouche Winery in Napa Valley.

Having watched many people commemorate special times in their lives with wine, Price and Schwartz's goal with Coupe de Foudre is to create a unique wine with elements worthy of an unforgettable moment worth capturing forever.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
