2007 "Mon Amour" Cabernet Sauvignon
Santa Ynez Valley, CA
Coquelicot Estate Vineyard
What we love
After a decade of rest, the 2007 “Mon Amour” red blend from Coquelicot (KOHK-li-koh) illustrates just how well Santa Barbara Cabernet blends can age. There’s tremendous depth and complexity in this bottle: see if you can notice the chocolate-covered cherry tones and its exotic perfume that is a mix of sandalwood, fragrant cedar, and aged cigar tobacco. Because of its age, the tannins have had time to soften to create a lusciously silky mouthfeel that everyone will love. This wine will no doubt shine next to slow braises of lamb or beef shank, or have it with a Porterhouse steak for an incredible meal.
About this Wine
The chance to drink a well-aged, affordable, Cabernet like this does not come very often, so when it does, it's a “need to have” scenario, even if your wine fridge is full. Have all your wine savvy friends over and blow them away with this incredible find. This wine is a fantastic way to drink and share something special without breaking the bank and, come to think of it, would also make an impressive gift. Cheers!

Coquelicot’s owner Bernard Rosenson, a Brooklyn native, has a knack for romanticism. He’s the owner of one of the most romantic restaurants in the country (you might have heard of The Sky Room in Long Beach, CA), and he’s the owner of a gorgeous vineyard.
With the help of winemaker Mike Roth, Rosenson is committed to organic farming for the Coquelicot vineyard, which keeps Coquelicot wines “clean and approachable,” and helps him collect awards for his estate wines. Mike also embodies the notion that the artists behind the wines are regular people: His “harvest fuel” includes chicharones, pork rinds, and Tecate beer.
