Vineyards such as Maroon and wines such as its 2009 Reserve Cabernet helped Coombsville earn appellation status, and the region will certainly enjoy more of the spotlight soon. Until then, grab a couple bottles of Maroon while prices from this up-and-coming hot spot remain reasonable.
The wine is highly aromatic, with dried violet, ripe dark plumb, currant, ground coffee, flint, cocoa nibs and dried coconut. Full-bodied and robust, it falls on the drier side on the palate, showing notes of black olive, black tea and delicate mineral notes with sweet and moderate tannins and a healthy dose of acidity that keeps the experience lively. The cellar life of this wine is about 15 years. Purchase several bottles, and experience its evolution over time, paired with quality steak.
