K&L Notes

The Coombsville area has produced grapes for Napa Valley bottlings for a very long time, but it became one of Napa's newest sub-appellations in 2011. As time goes by, wine drinkers will continue to see more Coombsville-designated bottlings from familiar producers like Joseph Carr. Writing for JancisRobinson.com, Elaine Chukan Brown describes this distinct and cool Napa terroir: "Also in the south, though slightly warmer than Carneros, Coombsville has garnered a rush of recent attention for its unique characteristics. At its best, the cooling climate of Coombsville offers a more refreshing and approachable style for Bordeaux varieties, wines with a more open weave. At the same time, many of the Bordeaux varieties from the sub-AVA offer an intrinsically different structure than those from elsewhere in the valley. The volcanic ash soils create tactile tannins very different from those of benchland soils... Coombsville wines can offer both refreshment and value."
