Description Technical Notes PDF Fact Sheet
A remarkably smooth crowd pleaser, Cabernet Franc and Merlot blended in Right Bank Bordeaux style. Bosky black cherry laced with anise, leather, toasted tobacco and chocolate. Lovely straight out of the bottle, yet continues to evolve through the second day, fattens and deepens, bringing out more dark-roasted coffee and focused chocolate notes. A little fruit, a little savory, and a lot smooth. This balanced wine works with any dish; bright fruit for lighter meals, and dark flavors complement grilled and roast meats. A favorite at the Stanley Lane Smokehouse 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--but more oomph...
