On Q Proprietary Red Cadence Napa Valley 2019
Proprietary Blends | US
Yep. Just a cool $55 OFF the winery’s price – no biggie. Oh wait...that’s HUGE! Coombsville’s On Q “Cadence” is a cabernet-based red that SINGS with the purity of fruit, spice, and earth that can only come from Coombsville – with a lush and round, supremely polished character that is definitively Napa. Too good to miss!
Coombsville is cool (literally and figuratively). Blacker than the soils of the collapsed volcano where it is grown, this wine is a freight train of créme de cassis and kirsch, with deep rich blackberries, pretty lilacs and white flowers, espresso, tobacco, graphite, crumbled rocks, and on, and on, and on it goes! Flavors that pop, with a come-hither, velvety finish that just won’t stop. NEARLY 60% OFF is wild, even for old grizzled wine-slingers like us. What else can we say?
OK, a bit more about ON Q: Cadence is the proprietary red blend of this estate, with classic Bordeaux varietals taking the major roles. Owner Steve Brady is a Napa native with a great passion for music and wine. He plays the trumpet semi-professionally, but his trade is as an engineer… and a few years back, he hired Maayan Koschitzky (Screaming Eagle, Dalle Valle, Atelier Melka, etc. who’s also an engineer by trade). Together they instituted a shared vision of precision winemaking that is both exacting and harmonious. They made the wines hand in hand, like the perfect jam band, for a few years together – with Maayan leaving Steve to finish the fantastic 2019 vintages solo. From a legendary duet to a star-making solo effort, this wine is simply one of the best Napa wine values you’ll see ANYWHERE! While it lasts, of course!
