Description Technical Notes PDF Fact Sheet
A remarkably smooth crowd pleaser, Cabernet Franc and Merlot blended in Right Bank Bordeaux style. 2016 finds this wine drinking beautifully. Bosky black cherry laced with anise, leather and chocolate. Lovely straight out of the bottle, yet continues to evolve through the second day, fattens and deepens a bit, bringing out more dark-roasted coffee and focused chocolate notes. A little fruit, a little savory, and a lot smooth. A balanced wine works with any dish; the bright fruit with lighter meals, and dark flavors complement grilled and roast meats. Delicious with pork--a favorite at the 'pumpkin patch' BBQ in Napa. Grown in cooler-climate Carneros hillsides, this blend shows why we call Cabernet Franc "the Pinot Lover's Bordeaux." Smooth texture with savory layers like a good pinot noir--but more oomph... Cheers!
