Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • SoNa is sourced from small vineyards in Coombsville and the hillsides southeast of downtown Napa
  • These cool-climate vineyards promote spicy aromatics and flavors in the wine
  • Resolved tannins as a result of the cooler growing conditions produce a wine of balance and elegance
  • Limited maceration and judicious use of new French oak allow the best expression of the fruit

From its first vintage in 2002, Coho has championed cooler climate Cabernet family grapes grown in Coombsville. We loved the richness and elegance of the wines. In 2015 we began sourcing from the hillside vineyards further south, along the eastern approaches to the city of Napa. Our "SoNa" blend brings these newer, dynamic growing areas to the forefront of the exciting future of Napa Valley wine.

Phillip Corallo-Titus

Winemaker, Coho

Winemaker, Phillip Corallo-Titus

From the age of 12, Phillip worked alongside the family in the vineyards. Phillip's taste for fine wine was developed at the dinner table as Lee shared Bordeaux, California Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from the cellar. Phillip's studies at UC Davis began in agronomy, progressed to viticulture and ultimately to enology. In 1979, Phillip worked harvest for his future in-laws at Quail Ridge. Through the 1980's he worked at Chappellet and Stratford, Cartlidge and Brown, returning to Chappellet in 1990 to take the position of Winemaker. This new position allowed Phillip to realize the family dream of producing wines. In that same year Phillip began making Titus Vineyards wine from their family estate at the Chappellet winery on Pritchard Hill in St. Helena.

Country born: United States

Education: Received an Enology degree from UC Davis

Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Phillip's goal is to create wines that reflect the family's personal sense of taste and style -- full bodied, well balanced reds. By blending complementary varietals possessed of fully mature flavors the resulting wines are distinctive and balanced, fusing the classic varietal characteristics with the vineyard location.
