2017 gave us the opportunity to craft this quintessential Cabernet Franc from a few Napa Valley vineyards, creating a complex wine reminiscent of right-bank Bordeaux. Aromas of black olive, tapenade, oak spice and blackberry on the nose carry into a savory palate with cocoa, black cherry and hints of minerality. The long finish highlights the wine’s powered tannins with the promise of aging beautifully for the next several years.
