Winemaker Notes

Beautiful floral tones of crushed violets and cassis. Red and black cherries and crushed red raspberries. Hints of cocoa powder, white pepper & spice !Palate: Rich, opulent mouthfeel... with great acidity and soft supple tannins. Elegantly balanced with gorgeous red & black cherry fruit and "signature notes" of dark chocolate and red raspberries laced throughout !Finish: Silky and seductive, with a plush velvety texture! Impressive acidity with beautifully integrated soft tannins and rich flavors of black cherries, red raspberries and dark chocolate!

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Franc Reserve leaps from glass with expressive black raspberries, black cherry preserves and wild blueberries notes plus hints of potpourri, pencil shavings, stewed tea and forest floor. Medium-bodied, fresh, restrained and elegantly styled in the mouth, it has a quiet intensity of savory flavors with a plush, fragrant finish.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Franc Reserve is all varietal and offers a decadent, uber-ripe bouquet of blackcurrants, melted licorice, cured meats, and peppery herbs. It stays pure and polished on the palate, with full-bodied richness and depth as well as sweet tannins. It's beautifully done and capable of evolving for 10-15 years.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
