2019 Cabernet Franc Napa Valley
Blending hints of spice with ripe boysenberry and dark cherry, this wine segues effortlessly to a full-bodied palate that combines firm tannins with complex notes of cocoa, roasted espresso, and baking spices.
Cabernet Franc comes from our Suscol Springs Estate Vineyard which is grown atop rocky, well-draining soils in the cool Southern reaches of Napa Valley. Here, the combination of Pacific fog from the nearby San Pablo Bay and bright sunshine combine to yield grapes that are impeccably balanced offering a combination of ripe fruit notes, robust tannins, and refreshing acidity.
"This grape is often overlooked as a blending grape, but Cab Franc can truly shine on its own, with its bright acidity, blackberry notes, and savory undertones".— Director of Winemaking, Stephanie Jacobs
