Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2008 Petite Sirah (Napa Valley)

Inky black, hard in tannins, bone dry and incredibly rich in smoked meat, blackberry, cassis and pepper flavors, this is, in other words, classic Petite Sirah. It’s brawny, but never loses its sense of poise. Will develop in the bottle for 20 years.  — S.H.   Published 5/1/2011

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2009 La Petite Sirah (Calistoga)

Tastes more like a full-bodied Pinot Noir than a Petite Sirah, a lightly silky, airy wine, with fine, smooth tannins and cherry, red licorice, cola and tobacco flavors. Even though it’s not particularly varietal, it’s still a very good, elegant wine.  — S.H.   Published 2/1/2012

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2008 Terroir Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc (Calistoga)

A bit on the soft, heavy side, with citrus fruit flavors that have a touch of green tobacco and peppercorn. Finishes very dry and rich, if a little eccentric. Drink this food-friendly wine now.  — S.H.   Published 4/1/2011

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2009 Le Petit Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc (Yountville)

Lots of tart, almost sour acidity in this Sauvignon Blanc. Gets the tastebuds whistling with savory flavors of lemons, limes and gooseberries, and is bone dry through the finish. Nice appetizer wine.  — S.H.   Published 4/1/2011

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2010 Verdelho (Calistoga)

An interesting wine by virtue of its oddball variety and the way it feels in the mouth. It’s bone dry and quite high in acidity, giving it an ultra-clean mouthfeel framing citrus and mineral flavors that are a bit vegetal. Needs stimulating food, especially umami-dominated.  — S.H.   Published 2/1/2012

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2009 Merlot (Calistoga)

Oddly acidic and hard in the mouth for Merlot, a variety that’s supposed to be soft and silky. You’ll find black cherry flavors, but not enough to punch through the tannins. Doesn’t seem capable of aging, so drink up.  — S.H.   Published 2/1/2012

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2009 Terroir Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

This is a thin, acidic wine, and it’s not quite ripe, to judge from the green, grassy, ammonia notes. It’s wonderfully dry and crisp in acidity, but that lack of richness makes it difficult to like.  — S.H.   Published 2/1/2012

Coquerel Family Wine Estates 2010 Le Petit Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley)

Despite some decent lemon and lime fruit, this Sauvignon Blanc tastes unripe, with a green, vegetal note that can charitably be described as gooseberry. That grassiness accentuates the acidity, making the wine taste sour.  — S.H.   Published 2/1/2012
