Old Poodle Dog-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley, Magnum-2013

Old Poodle Dog
Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, Magnum


Local winery  COHO’s 2nd release of, what we call, “OPD.” 2/3 Coombsville fruit, rest Yountville Cross Road and Diamond Mountain. Nose: cinnamon dusted black cherries, cocoa powder, tar and wheat toast. Taste black currants, more black cherries, pie spice, tobacco and mocha. Big, youthful finish of both flavor and tannins. A “serious” Napa Cab for a not-so-serious price. 8% combined Merlot, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
From Coho owner Gary Lipp:
"Not long after I moved to Napa I first heard the legend of the Old Poodle Dog. Back in the Gold Rush days of San Francisco the most popular French restaurant was named Le Poulet D’Or. Many of the miners found the unfamiliar language of the restaurant’s name difficult to pronounce so it was mangled into Old Poodle Dog, and soon the restaurant had a new name.

"The Old Poodle Dog became one of the most fashionable eateries in San Francisco and resided in several different locations over the years. Sadly when the blight of Prohibition appeared the proprietor closed the doors exclaiming 'Great cuisine cannot be served without wine.' I couldn’t agree more.
