2011 Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley

2011 Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley

2011 Cabernet Franc


VINTAGE
2011 was a difficult but rewarding year for the Napa Valley. Cooler than average temperatures into the summer along with more rainfall than normal presented myriad challenges to the vineyard team, but we finished with a successful harvest after several warm weeks in late October. This vintage ultimately yielded small quantities of beautifully balanced and intricate wines with lower alcohol levels. At 99% Cabernet Franc, this wine exhibits unbridled varietal character with a distinct layer of lush California fruit.

TASTING
A classic Cab Franc showcasing savory dried herbs, tea, sage, cedar, black and white pepper, and a range of red and dark fruits; this wine is refined and structured with uniformly smooth tannins and a clean finish.
