REALLY IT STILL EXISTS – GREAT QUALITY, UNDER $45 Napa Cabernet by A 99+ Winemaker

 

 

The legend of the Old Poodle Dog… Back in the Gold Rush days of San Francisco the most popular French restaurant was named Le Poulet D’Or (which actually mean the Golden Chicken). Many of the miners found the unfamiliar language of the restaurant’s name difficult to pronounce so it was mangled into (Old) Poodle Dog, and soon the restaurant had a new name.

The Old Poodle Dog became one of the most fashionable eateries in San Francisco and resided in several different locations over the years. Sadly when the blight of Prohibition appeared the proprietor closed the doors exclaiming “Great cuisine cannot be served without wine.” I couldn’t agree more.

Winemaker Phil Titus from Chappellet greatness for the 2 decades, has been at the winemaking helm at Coho since 2012 and it really shows.

Since it is a Coho wine, and it is the much anticipated 2014 vintage, I hope you’ll be as excited as I am about this wine. This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot was sourced from the same vineyards Coho works with for its designated varietal program. This is a fun, but very serious wine that comes with an economical friendly price tag. On the nose one is greeted by intense black stone fruit and chocolate notes. On the palate this youngster shows great finesse and overflows with bright black currant, mocha and a touch of toasty vanilla notes. Full in body this youngster will please both wallet and palate.
