2005 Coya "Oakville" Napa Valley Malbec (Previously $35)

SKU #1080282

Very ripe and sweet upfront, the Coya '05 is a dark, chewy wine with hints of coffee, black cherry, and licorice. This wine over delivers for the price! Nearly impossible to find wines from Oakville for under $30, this under $10 buy is crazy! - Trey Beffa

Wow, I wish I had bought more than two bottles of this at K&L. Might be the biggest malbec that I've ever had in a good way. Much more in the Cali Cab-Bordeaux style than your Argentine malbec. K&L said previously $35 and I can actually see this wine selling in that range. At $9.99 it's crazy good and, of course, sold out.
Drink from 2012 to 2013

It goes through a myriad of changes when first opened. It is an older wine and I thought it lacked finish early on. But after an hour it picked up a good nose and had plenty of spice in the finish. Lots of sediments in the bottle. Recommend decanter for at least an hour. Drink now. Good buy for the price.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
