The Lightning Bolt Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon

5 cases produced

Coup de Foudre (“when lightning strikes”) presents a very special offering for Premiere Napa Valley, a 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon that we’ve named The Lightning Bolt Blend. One barrel trumped all others. This one-of-a-kind electrifying Cabernet Sauvignon aged in Taranssaud is elevated by 2% Petit Verdot and grounded with 4% Cabernet Franc. This won't strike twice! Intense blueberry and ripe dark fruit set the tone for this rich, complex wine. Well-integrated oak tannins intertwine with soft grape tannins to fill out the mouthfeel and extend the finish. A balanced aromatic matrix show nuances of dark chocolate, vanilla bean and ripe cherries.

Aging Process

22 months in french oak
