Winery Notes: “While Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are often spoken about in the same breath, they could not be more different. We love working with this wonderous varietal from Oakville Ranch Vineyard and the resulting wines. Experience has allowed us a more insightful approach to not only winemaking but matching cooperage type, size, and age to its delicacy. We are blessed with days of ample sunshine and chilling fog in Napa Valley. Our interpretation of Cabernet Franc straddles the divide between understated elegance, herbal undertones, and California’s signature all with the esprit of low intervention winemaking. Our goal is to pick clusters at ideal ripeness, each berry plump and flavorful. 2016 vintage wears the attributes of fresh rose petals, red plum skin, chaparral, and even a whiff of dried mint. Expect moderate tannins, sweet and refined, with aspects of black tea and sea salt. Poised for a long life yet deliciously ready to drink with decanting. Bottled without fining or filtration in June 2018. California Certified Organic Farming.”
