Description

92% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec 

Tasting Notes

Ripe berry notes with kirsch, black cherry, vanilla, toast and graphite.  The mouthfeel is round and broad across the palate with supple tannins and a long finish.  Decant in its youth.

Vineyard Notes

The fruit for our Cabernet Franc was handpicked in the early morning hours to preserve freshness and skin integrity.  The grapes went through our multiple sorting technique at our historic winery in St. Helena before being gravity fed into the fermenters.  After an extended maceration on the skins the wine was slowly fermented at cold temperatures for increased flavor, color and aromas.  The wine was aged for 20 months in 75% new French oak and minimally racked before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
