Winemaker Notes

The inspiration for Headwaters is that special, hard to find place, always just around the next bend, where tall trees grow and pure water nourishes exposed gravel bars, and where for Coho salmon, the beginning is also the end. Like that idyllic spot, our wine is focused on absolute purity of fruit. It has elegant oak nuances and beautiful, purple plum and wild berry aromas, with a supple texture, silky density and polished tannins. The Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot vineyards sourced for this blend come from the cool "Coombsville Area" of the Napa Valley, where intense, deep red color and soft tannins are typical of the wines.

Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34 % Merlot, and 4 % Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Ultrarich, complex and concentrated, with ripe currant, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's notably elegant and polished for a wine this size. Ends with ripe, mouthcoating tannins. Long on finesse. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Coho
Coho, California
Coho is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. Grown in select cool-climate vineyards, Coho wines emphasize fruit purity and vitality. Our combined experience working for California wineries totals almost sixty years: both of us involved in all aspects of our craft, acquiring the skills to bottle our passion.

Our choice of Coho as the name of our brand might seem curious as it doesn’t invoke images of vineyards or wine, but to us the salmon embodies an innate wisdom so essential to understanding ourselves and our environment. As stewards of the land winemakers must strive to sustain our habitat and the species that share it. And like the salmon we need the steadfast will to keep going no matter how difficult the journey.

Napa Valley

View all wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
