Matt Hardin, a 6th generation Napa resident and farmer, is a partner in Barbour Vineyards, one of the […]

Great New Coho (2016) Cabernet Release

I am excited to introduce the new Coho Cabernet Sauvignon from the very (small) 2016 vintage. The wine is sourced from two boutique, family-owned vineyards located in the Napa Valley (Sugarloaf East, Perata & Michael Black).
