With the first slow sip, the Cobalt 2006 vintage speaks of the best of times. A big Cabernet brought from Spring Mountain, up in the good weather above Napa Valley, up where the care and craftsmanship of the Sherwin family pay off in a nuanced appeal to the best in all of us. Up where the Sherwin’s gravity-flow winery transforms Cobalt founder Pack St. Clair’s good grapes into something like laughter.
Like the boat-builder who gave the vintage its name, like the vintners who brought it to fruition, this rich red table wine is all conversational. Straightforward. Open to new possibilities among folks who know the value of now, the joy of the moment, the promise of more such days to come.
Here’s to old friends. Here’s to family. Here’s to what matters.

Created with Napa Valley Spring Mountain fruit, the 2006 COBALT Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits deep black cherry color and rich dark berries on the nose, this wine shows true mountain fruit characteristics with dark blackberry and blueberry notes and firm, well-integrated tannins. Nicely balanced, its full mid-palate is followed by a long, lingering finish demonstrating the natural elegance of the 2006 vintage..
