Winemaker's Notes

57% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 12 % Petit Verdot.

The wine is a deep purple red. The aromas are of plummy deep fruit and subtle oak spice. The palate is broad and plush, ripe and round.There are minerals and spice dancing below red and black fruit. Coda 2007's texture buries the tannins, but they are present, as well as enough acidity to keep the finish brisk and cleansing.

Critical Acclaim

"Cadence's value offering, the 2007 Coda, is a second label made from fruit declassified from the vineyard designated wines. It is a blend of 57% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 12% Petit Verdot aged for 14 months in 40% new French oak. It has an alluring bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, violets, incense, and black currant. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, sweetly-fruited wine with savory flavors, a smooth texture, and well-integrated oak. This balanced, intense effort will continue to blossom for another 2-3 years and deliver prime drinking from 2011 to 2019. "
